‘Rigoletto’ at PB Opera, second cast: Brilliant singing, smart staging
The Rigoletto on Saturday night was Russian Alexander Krasnov, a wonderful bass-baritone born in Yekaterinburg. His acting was flawless and his singing was immaculate. His interpretation of the role of possessive father was never cloying, always respectful and he delivered all his arias with a freshness and vocal flexibility the envy of many. From top to bottom his melliflous intonation was delightful to hear.
