Les Contes d´Hoffmann, Baden-Baden 2018
Online Merker, Gerhard Hoffmann
At the end of the performance there came another delicacy: rhythmically, ironically bubbling like champagne and transparent on a very high level the Philharmonia Chorus Vienna sang his part.
With a wonderful sound and creating their part in a varying manner the Philharmonia Chorus Vienna coached by Walter Zeh could be heard in many diverse scenes. Once again this choir showed why it is so much sought after everywhere.
As usual with opera productions in Festspielhaus the different parts were casted with the best. That the Philharmonia Chorus Vienna, coached by Walter Zeh, would be a guarantee for the best performance was clear considering the former appearances of this choir.
