Egils Silins proved superior in every respect... the words meant something, both in themselves and in proper Wagnerian musico-dramatic alchemy with the notes.

Fidelio (DVD)

Lise Davidsen and David Butt Philip lead The Royal Opera in this striking new production.

Beethoven’s only opera is a masterpiece, an uplifting story of risk and triumph. In this new production, conducted by Antonio Pappano, David Butt Philip plays the political prisoner Florestan, and Lise Davidsen his wife Leonore (disguised as ‘Fidelio’) who daringly sets out to rescue him. Set in strong counterpoint are the ingredients of domestic intrigue, determined love and the cruelty of an oppressive regime.

The music is transcendent throughout with highlights including the famous Act I Quartet, the Prisoners’ Chorus and Florestan’s aria, which conjures hope from the depths of despair. Tobias Kratzer’s new staging brings together the dark reality of the French Revolutionary ‘Terror’ and our own time to illuminate Fidelio’s inspiring message of shared humanity.

Der Ring des Nibelungen, Dresdner Philharmonie

Ließ sich so mancher Göttervater zu weniger melodischem Sprechgesang verleiten, nicht so Egils Silins. Der lettische international renommierte Bassbariton erwies sich als ehrenvoller Göttervater und präsentierte einen vokal prächtigen Wotan von enormer Ausdruckskraft. Mühelos bündelte der versierte Sänger vokale Reserven und führte sein schönstimmiges Material auch emotional bis ins Extreme, adelte die kräftezehrenden Monologe mit vortrefflicher Intonation zu akzentfreier Deklamation. Gleichwohl paarte…
