Der Rosenkavalier im Opernhaus Zürich
Der Rosenkavalier – Richard Strauss
Tonhalle Zürich, Juni 2012
Orchester Opernhaus Zürich, Dirigent: Fabio Luisi
... and the bright silvery all-over, sparkling clean-singing Sophie by Rachel Harnisch is downright eventful.
Conversely, this does not mean that Rachel Harnisch in the role of the initially naive naïve marriage-promise object Sophie, later to a quite self-consciously converted loving young woman did not shine. Harnisch is a singer who can be seen and heard building their vocal performance. In the end, one was rather amazed that their quality did not immediately catch your eye, but rather sounded in the ear.
