With La Traviata ending last night, we're moving on to our next amazing production.
We are so excited to be presenting LA VOIX HUMAINE for @melbfringe next month, 25th to 30th Sept.
Taking place in a series of tiny rooms, BK Opera has taken a 20th century opera classic and created a unique and visceral theatre experience. This is opera up-close, intimate and unrestrained.
Our amazing Violetta, Rada Tochalna, did a photo shoot recently and managed to capture the essence of her character on film! We are so excited to share our interpretation with you so very soon! #bkopera#bkbold . .
“…dressed in mourning black, the richly centred and emotively well-calibrated mezzo-soprano, Allegra Giagu, mixed radiance with elegance and poise as Charlotte. In a woman she effortlessly showed as kind and dutiful, troubled and empathetic, Giagu’s Charlotte also portrayed a love for Werther that felt real despite the picture of incompatibility. In Act III’s opening aria, "Werther! Qui m'aurait dit … Ces lettres!”, in which she dolefully reads over Werther’s letters, Giagu dug deep with heartfelt voice on every rise and fall and effected a quivering vibrato that mirrored a crushed inner soul - a performance highlight.“ - Opera Chaser 🎭🎶 There’s only one more chance to see Allegra’s wonderful performance as Charlotte!

Werther Review is in... 😂❤️ apparently, I'm too glamorous...!? 💕
I sing two more shows:
29th April and 1st May 🎶💋
"While perhaps presented a little too glamorously for twenty-year-old Charlotte, Allegra Giagu nonetheless brings out the sympathetic aspects of a young woman torn between love and duty. Giagu excels in the Letter Scene, opening the third act with an extended period of lovely singing."
