|Madama Butterfly, Staatsoper, Sttutgart|
Neuer Merker Wien, 14/11/06
In his naturalness and stirring emotionality, A. Vicens is the heir of Pinkerton. He knows how to hide wild adventurousness behind the soulful facade and sensitive love songs of a latin lover. Accomplished piano, a resonant core and highs that unfold seamlessly and melt into a clear expression are combined with a touch of tearfulness in the timbre to create that particular Puccini scent, which brings the audience to its knees.
