Susanna in Geneva
“Many would agree, though, that the central character in this work is not Figaro but Susanna, and here Geneva scored a world-class winner. Swiss soprano Regula Mühlemann was last heard in Geneva as the Woodbird in Siegfried three years ago. This was her first major role here. There are many good Susannas, but hers was outstanding. Her voice is focused with bright and clear notes. Once again, technique is key for singers and hers showed she has control, projection and colour. She cut a delightful and resolute figure on stage which no one could resist. Her “Deh vieni” was the culmination of a great evening. Watch out for her, she soon will be in high demand on the best stages.”
La Suzanne de la soprano suisse Regula Mühlemann séduit d’emblée : pétillante, haute en couleur, amoureuse (voilà pour le drame), exquise, nuancée, suffisamment onctueuse (voilà pour la voix). Elle délivre un très touchant « Deh vieni non tardar ».
Ein Lichtblick ist Regula Mühlemann als Susanna, die in Stimme wie Erscheinung entschieden an Format gewonnen hat.
