Congratulations to Vitaliy Bilvy..

January 28, 2017

.. on his superb debut at the Royal Opera House as a particularly evil baddie – Count di Luna in Il Trovatore. I hope that he will return to Covent Garden many many times and I will get to listen to his marvellous voice again.

While I am on Il Trovatore, how amazing was Anita Rachvelishvili as Azucena? Very. Mind you, she did have the juiciest bits and got to reveal the most interesting plot twists. Without giving too much away, I would recommend thinking carefully before murdering someone and seeing Il Travatore – still 4 performances left.
