La Juive in Lyon
La Juive - Jacques Fromental Halévy
Opera de Lyon, März 2015
Orchestre et Choeurs de L'Opéra de Lyon
Dirigent: Daniele Rustioni
The young (sic!) Swiss Rachel Harnisch developed her character very exciting and linear. A vocal and psychological masterpiece in this context was her romance "Il va venir", in which her doubts about Leopold's authenticity grow. Harnisch's warm soprano has a perfect fit as well as an excellent register veneer and never got into trouble in the trio with the two tenors, because their radiant highs up to the H and a good volume of their voice also give them weight there.
Das Opernglas, Stefan Mauss
... a first-class ensemble ... the wonderfully glowing Rachel Harnisch!
But above all stood Rachel Harnisch, who with her fantastically beautiful timbred lyric soprano that sounds equally good in all situations, but possesses enough punch for the more dramatic scenes, and was the true incarnation of Rachel with great expressiveness.
Der Neue Merker
At Halévy's "La Juive" the musical side left nothing to be desired ....
a rarely homogeneous ensemble .... Nikolai Schukoff as a vengeful Jew Eleazar, Rachel Harnisch as his daughter Rachel, who is actually a Christian, Enea Scala as an unfaithful lover Leopold, Sabina Puértola as a sexy princess Eudoxie.
... and Rachel Harnisch (Rachel), with extended vocal lines.
Opera ClickHis daughter, however, in the person of Rachel Harnisch, a holder close to the ideal, with the necessary bass and a confusing sweetness in the transmission of acute; the Swiss soprano's French is excellent, and the actress is convincing.
From the title role, the well-known Rachel Harnisch makes understand passion, determination and the sacrificial vocation (she dies to save Leopold) in a song at once full and nuanced.
Among the ladies, Rachel Harnisch, who sings under the baton of Claudio Abbado, plays a Rachel of great pace, the stamp moving unhindered in the territories of the serious soprano required. Like her colleagues, she has an impeccable diction.
