Macbeth at Edinburgh Festival

Post  RobertA on Fri Aug 28, 2009 2:10 am

Your reviewer suggested Tenor Lado Ataneli stole the show (concert perforamnce of Macbeth at Edinburgh Festival). The role of macbeth in Verdis opera is of course written for a baritone and fortunately Lado Ataneli is a baritone. She also seems unaware that Verdi said there were three main characters - macbeth, lady macbeth and the witches. The Edinburgh housewives who made up the distaff side of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus sang as if they were witches on a daily basis. Magnificent !

Apologies - we did actually correct this mistake a few days ago, but it seems not to have uploaded properly. I'll deal with it asap.

The reviewer also refers to the 'velvety baritone' of John Relyea. He's unquestionably a bass, as the role demands, and I'd describe the texture as 'gritty' rather than velvety, myself. The equally inadequate review of 'Admeto' (the 'wailing' she refers to by 'contralto' David Bates would more accurately be described as singing consistently out of tune) does no credit to your website, and I'll be avoiding any future contributions from this reviewer. Sorry to be negative, but I'm sure you can take criticism as well as give it!
Regards,
Jamie
