‘Le nozze di Figaro’ at the Salzburg Festival

Anett Fritsch reprises her portrayal of Countess Almaviva in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, this summer at the Salzburg Festival. Ms. Fritsch previously performed the role to great acclaim at last year’s Festival, which is also captured on an expertly praised DVD release from Euro Arts. Luca Pisaroni returns as Count Almaviva, Anna Prohaska is Susanna, Adam Plachetka stars in the title role, and Margarita Gritskova is Cherubino. Dan Ettinger leads from the pit for these performances, which take place August 16, 19, 22, 25, 28 & 30.

Enjoy a selection of reviews from Anett’s 2015 portrayal of the Countess in Salzburg:

“Off to one side, we see the lovely, downcast Countess (the alluring soprano Anett Fritsch) . . . Left alone, the Countess sings her poignant aria, “Porgi amor,” which Ms. Fritsch did with mellow sound and elegant phrasing.”
Anthony Tommasini – The New York Times

“Anett Fritsch is a pretty, erotic Contessa with an excellent temperament in the arias . . .”
C. F. Pichler – Stol.it

{Anett Fritsch ist eine hübsche, erotische Contessa mit exzellenter Disposition bei den Arien . . .}

“Anett Fritsch is a sorrowful Countess, but through her pain she flourishes, getting buckets of applause.”
Wolfram Goertz – General-Anzeiger

{Anett Fritsch als traurige, doch im Schmerz aufblühende Gräfin bekommt kübelweise Beifall.}
