Glyndebourne has brought to light a long-overlooked winner in Donizetti’s Poliuto, delivering ‘a superb musical performance’ (The Telegraph) offering ‘lucent accounts of the principal roles and an incandescent London Philharmonic Orchestra, under Enrique Mazzola’ (New York Times).
This first-ever professional UK staging of the story of third-century Armenian martyr St Polyeuctus features a ‘trio of world-class young singers’ with Beverly Sills and Richard Tucker-award-winning Fabiano displaying a ‘thrilling, vibrant tone’ in the title role, Ana Maria Martínez providing Paolina with ‘pinging coloratura’ and Igor Golovatenko giving a ‘radiant-toned’ voice to Severo (The Guardian).
