Anne Ozorio – Opera Today

10 mai 2013


Royal OperaOne of Béatrice Uria-Monzon signature roles is Carmen, so when she sang the Princess of Eboli, she brought a Carmen-like sharpness to the role, which was entirely in order. Her veil song was a showpiece but the song is a mask, since the princes’s true feelings are also hidden behind a veil. When she realizes her mistakes, her personality disintegrates. When Uria-Monzon sings of the convent, she suggests the horoor of living death.

 

Béatrice Uria-Monzon amène du tranchant qu’elle tire de Carmen, l’un de ses rôles titres et réalise une prestationcomplètement en ligne avec le rôle.
Son chant du voile est un pur joyau !
