  1. Vocally this is really excellent Idomeneo. Spyres surely is the best interpreter of this hardest role for at least the last decades and one of the best in history. Nowadays such virtuoso coloratura passages no any male voice can’t perform in such brilliant, perfect way. Anton Raaff himself hardly could do it better. Devieilhe’s soprano becomes wider and more opaque, though it is still light and elegant. Bonitatibus is a real veteran with 30 years career and she is still good despite a wide vibrato through the range. Chevalier is not technically perfect, she has a lot of technical and pitch issues, but she prefers passionate forte and the audience appreciate it despite the stylistic dissonance. Pichon creates his own Idomeneo, and he was booed without any reason during the curtain call, his interpretation is very raffinee and it shows the deep connection between Mozart’s musical language and the French style of the opéra de sauvetage ‘rescue opera’. Miyagi is not an opera director, he creates some static installations and makes of Mozart’s musical masterpiece a soundtrack to his abstract decorations. This has no sence, taste and respect for Mozart and audience. But to miss such vocal perfection is a real crime for any opera lover.
