PRODUCTION Opéra de Monte-Carlo / Opéra Royal de Wallonie
I loved Marseille. It was hot, 27 - 30 degrees Celsius. I also loved Ernani in this production. Hui He was wonderful as Elvira. It is a demanding role and despite Marseille being her first time as Elvira she was really good and will be absolutely amazing with time.
Francisco Meli was amazing as Ernani. Ludovic Tezier was also great as Don Carlo, King of Spain.
Alexander Vingradov was also great as Don Ruy Gomez de Silva.
