Las Palmas of Gran Canaria: LA FILLE DU REGIMENT

Felicissima presa di ruolo quella di Marie da parte della “nostra” Jessica Pratt, che consideriamo italianissima nonostante la sua nascita australiana. Un ruolo che le sta a meraviglia perchè il soprano riesce a trasferire nel bizzarro personnaggio della trovatella militarizzata il suo humor genuino, spontaneo e contagioso. Cosa combini nei panni di un meccanico alle prese col motore di una jeep, è difficile da descrivere. Viceversa, l’impiccionata – il secondo atto da un palco di prosecnio invaso dai commilitoni del 21esimo reggimento durante il sopranile “saluto alla Francia! – rende appieno non solo le prodezze tenorili, ma anche le squisitezze del soprano che possiede il dono, riservato a poche, di lanciare acuti radiosi, timbratissimi che scendono al cuore come un balsamo. Prezioso il suo “Convien partir” (in francese ovviamente) ma anche tutto il resto: la sortita con Sulpice, la scena della lezione con la Marchesa ed il nostalgico canto del secondo atto. Pure per lei un trionfo: segnatamente dopo ogni numero chiuso e soprattutto alla ribalta finale.

TRIUMPH OF JESSICA PRATT AND JAVIER CAMARENA IN LAS PALMAS WITH "LA FILLE DU RÉGIMENT"

Marie was a fabulous Jessica Pratt, who debuted the role with an exquisite, neat vision of the protagonist. To her Marie, who has to sing lying on her back with her head under a car, a thousand tricks are created on the stage that may have complicated the night for anyone, but not her. Pratt seems to be able to do everything and with a most convincing comic visage, she depicted an active woman, decisive in the drama and really unblemished in her vocal interpretation. Of a very homogenous register, the performance of Pratt is pure delicacy, pure sweetness with a instrument of many carats that travels with ease. Crystalline projection and great timbre in an iridescent line finished in an impeccable handling of the coloratura and the extreme high notes, wonderful in Chacun le sait or attacking Salut à la France for example without hesitation, without slowing the rhythm and where she solved the descents to the lowest notes with success. Much applauded, hopefully her Marie will travel around the whole world so that everyone can enjoy it.

Apotheosis of the sons of the regiment

...on the same level, British soprano Jessica Pratt. Her sound is young, charmingly projected, caressing in the middle register, extremely flexible in the virtuosity of the coloratura belcantista and without apparent limit in heights, that reach the E natural without the slightest effort. Admirable and adorable in the vocal and stage play, she debuted here her reading of Marie with another acclamatory success. Both, tenor and soprano, established from beginning to end a warm empathic bond with the audience.
