MOZART- DIE ENTFÜHRUNG AUS DEM SERAIL
Aalto Music Theatre 2012
Simona Saturová as Lucia Popp and Edita Gruberova coming from Bratislava is nothing short of a small miracle of Mozart. She sings Konstanze with such seismic coloratura, such piano-sensitivity and style perfection that take your breath away. Just because of this singer pays a visit to the Aalto Music Theatre.

Simona Saturová (Konstanze), with sparkling coloratura, floating Piani and creative imagination pulls out all the stops in her field. She sings the aria “Traurigkeit war mir zum Lose“ so beautifully heartbreaking that immediately following bravura “tortures all Artern” is a minor matter. Remain in memory of a dedicated ensemble (with a soprano of international caliber at the top) and Mozart at its best from the orchestra pit.

Soprano Simona Houda-Šaturová, in the role of Constance, masterfully dominated the vocal production. In addition to her reliable vocal technique she also has a sensitive musical sense for the mood of the individual arias, which she manages to sing with a slender, delicate pianissimo, as well as an exact coloratura and a warm cantability.

We heard excellent vocal performances at the first premiere: especially Simona Houda-Šaturová (Konstanze) who, as usual, did not disappoint and filled her role with virtuoso coloratura (she even outdid the lightness and violin solo of the concert maestro), beautiful high tones and a flawless Mozart style.
