Violetta in LA TRAVIATA - Deutsche Oper Berlin, January 2015
As expected, Kurzak - who was making her debut in Berlin a few days earlier - was the star of the evening in the role of Violetta. Thanks to her rich colorful timbre and impeccable vocal technique, she has overshadowed the other soloists. Her interpretation of the role is mature and cleverly thought, which was most obvious in the last Act, when Violetta’s feelings of joy, despair and desire to live culminate. Kurzak knows perfectly how to give life to all these emotions, magnifying this part of the performance.
