This season’s performance, generally of a high level, was distinguished by the superbly detailed portrayal of debut artist Laura Claycomb, an American soprano for whom Donizetti’s doomed heroine is something of a signature role.
Gifted with a crystalline timbre, Claycomb created a characterization that ranged from an almost giddy happiness, progressing to tragic defiance, and finally descending to a heart-rending state of madness. There was a never a false step dramatically, and all of the music, particularly the upper reaches of this high-lying score, was sung with complete security.
