Grande fermento a Milano per il Don Giovanni di Mozart, nella ripresa dell’allestimento di Robert Carsen che aprì la stagione scaligera 2010/2011. A pochi giorni dalla prima del 6 maggio, incontriamo il protagonista Thomas Hampson, artista di fama internazionale, che a coronamento di una lunga e duratura carriera, è al suo debutto operistico alla Scala. Il baritono statunitense ci parla del suo Don Giovanni, di come si diventa un cantante d’opera cosmopolita e del ruolo della musica e dell’arte in questo momento così difficile della storia contemporanea.

Thomas Hampson returned last night to La Scala, where he has been a regular presence in recital for almost three decades.

Thomas Hampson hatte nur vier Stunden Schlaf. Aber er will nicht klagen, würde es wahrscheinlich sogar vermissen, wäre sein Terminkalender nicht mehr derart prall gefüllt. In Heidelberg leitet der Bariton die Liedakademie des “Frühlings”. Aber zwischendurch musste er kurz nach Wien und mit dem Sänger Luca Pisaroni (der sein Schwiegersohn ist) ein Konzert geben. Tenöre waren auf der Bühne nicht erlaubt – das ist schon mal ein Unterschied zur Heidelberger Liedakademie.

“Thomas Hampson is a proper stuffed-shirt as Alfredo’s father Germont senior as he persuades Violetta to leave his son for the sake of the family honor and adding a fine “Di Provenza il mar,” one of the great baritone arias, in Act II.”
