Teatro Filarmonico in Verona
An enchanting Carolina in Veronica Granatiero, a crystalline and gleaming voice, able to give character to brilliant as well as more languid and pathetic passages, showing not only precise and well-articulated runs and trills, but also polished and suggestive vocals.

Among the female singers, Veronica Granatiero’s Carolina deserves special mention. Veronica, endowed with a well-timbered voice, a beautiful vocal tone, remarkable technical skills, and confident both in the upper and middle register, underlined both the melancholic side of the character (the recitativo accompagnato “Come tacerlo poi, se in un ritiro” and the following quintet “Deh, lasciate ch’io respiri” were moments of great effect and emotion) and the mischievous side, in particular in the duet with her sister Elisetta, which musically resembles that of Susanna /Marcellina in Mozart’s Nozze di Figaro.
The protagonist, Veronica Granatiero, portrays a forceful Carolina, with a colourful voice and captivating diction.
Quite good cast of singers, with highlights featuring Veronica Granatiero as Carolina. A beautiful, delicate and precious voice, as well as a confident performer.
Outstanding performance by soprano Veronica Granatiero, who portrayed a Carolina of unusual depth: in addition to this, and to her charm and “piquancy”, Veronica Granatiero also brought out the sweetness and the melancholy of a character that is far more complex than it usually reveals. All embodied in a confident and crystalline timbre throughout the register.
