Lucia Munich with Juan Diego Florez
Great success for Gimadieva and Flórez
Young Russian soprano Venera Gimadieva was a perfect Lucia to Flórez’ Edgardo. Her voice exuded excitement and anticipation, with a brilliant, phosphorescent top register perfectly suited to the young girl in love. She made an effort in every musical phrase, finding different colours in her voice to suit each moment and the emotion. Nonetheless, her performance was quite natural and believable.
