Review : Grande Duchesse de Gerolstein, Luzerner Theater

Heaven and hell pass through Marina Viotti in the emotionally exposed, sadly primed title role. How she flared fears, anger, exuberance and grief on all sides with her lithe and luminous voice remained a class of its own.

And when she rushes by in her passages to the royal box in front of us, her scent lingers – as bewitching and incomprehensible as the stunning Marina Viotti plays and sings this role.

Marina Viotti in the main role as Grand Duchess convinced all along the line. As the 32-year-old embodies the Grand Duchess as a strong, but also vulnerable person, is worth listening to and worth seeing.
