Micaëla in Bizet´s Carmen
The central character of this production, however, is Micaëla, performed magnificently by Magdalena Hinterdobler. Fortunately, keeping in line with contemporary values, her portrayal of Micaëla has plenty of independence and attitude.
Hinterdobler’s acting was simple, thoughtful and affecting and her vocal abilities were remarkable: a silky, resonant tone but with a multitude of expressive undercurrents, by turns impassioned, strong and desolately sad. Her aria in Act 3 was the clear highlight of the evening, bringing many audience members visibly to tears and eliciting huge applause." Backtrack 11/2019
