This production has been searching for its ideal Don Alfonso and in Riccardo Novaro it comes pretty near to finding him. Mozart and Rossini are his specialities, so it’s stylishly and powerfully sung.
Hilary Finch, The Times, October 2009 (Mozart Così fan tutte -
Glyndebourne Touring Opera)
If space permits me only to highlight the
splendid Novaro’s Don Alfonso, it is simply because I have not heard
the role better sung or characterised in a lifetime of Cosi's.
Brian Robin, Early Music, October 2009 (Mozart Così fan tutte- Beaune Festival)
