Belcanto Fireworks: The "Klangvokal" Dortmund festival opens with Gioacchino Rossini's "Le Comte Ory"

As a true queen of belcanto, Jessica Pratt triumphs at his side, well known for her interpretation of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. Her soprano voice is extremely flexible, light and beaming, but also powerful up to the high extremes, always well shaped and noble. As in a blind flight this wonderful singer rides through all the insidious bends of the virtuous ornamental singing. Her staccati, just slightly marked are something to kneel for. Light as a feather and unfailingly precise. Rossini’s mastery has found in her the ultimate performer.

This is followed by the Countess's performance, which is given by Jessica Pratt with radiant heights and light flowing coloratura. Her aria "En proie à la tristesse", in which she bemoans her melancholy [...], served through Pratt's cleanly raised heights represents another musical highlight...

The Australian soprano Jessica Pratt, as Adèle de Formoutiers, made an almost sensational debut. The world-famous singer (among other things, she sings Lucia di Lammermoor in the coming season 2017/18 in New York and in Paris) spoiled the audience with her voice, her coloratura, the precise top notes and the wonderful singing power.

Soprano Jessica Pratt shined wonderfully over the strong orchestral tones ...a perfect coloratura and belcanto singer for the role of the countess.

Thew real surprise star of the evening was Jessica Pratt in the role of the courted countess Adèle. The Australian, between the Met, Paris and Covent Garden, is exiting: flawless and secure even in the notes just marked with clean high notes and super fast coloratura.

...the soprano Jessica Pratt was absolutely admirable in the role of Elvira, in which, it is true, she has much experience. Elvira is a particularly challenging and demanding role that she managed brilliantly. Notably in acute stances without any aggressiveness, quite the contrary, all sung with nuances and apparently with ease.
