Celso Albelo recital at the Teatro de la Zarzuela


He Teatro de la Zarzuela He has not rested this Christmas and has scheduled, as a main course, a concert of new year 2 January with the Canarian tenor Celso Albelo. the repertoire, very pleasing to the usual audience of Zarzuela, He began with the overture to "Orpheus in the Underworld", by Jacques Offenbach. A fabulous instrumental version that prepared the public for a Celso Albelo that began with the aria Edgardo, the “Lucia de Lammermoor” de Donizetti. after this aria, Nemorino's ballad in "L'elisir d'amore", "a furtive tear". Much celebrated was Fernando's ballad in Doña Francisquita, "By the smoke you know where the fire is", that Albelo sang with great taste and agility. The Canarian tenor finds himself in a magnificent mouthful moment. A beautiful tone enhanced by harmonics that fill everything. A polished and radiant voice. Clear and exquisite phrasing. Although it started a bit static, enjoyed in the encore of "La donna è mobile" by Rigoletto, who had performed before, in which an impeccable C was marked, How impeccable were the other bis, "to my friends", of "the daughter of the regiment", that delighted an audience at that point delivered and to whom the meager tip tasted little.
The program was completed with other instrumental works such as the Nabucco Overture, the Prelude to the Grenadier Drum, by Rupert Chapí, Benamor fire dance, from Pablo Luna and the intermission of The wedding of Luis Alonso, from Gerónimo Giménez. Classic works that are always appreciated to listen to. A younger audience is missing in this type of recitals, and in the Teatro de la Zarzuela the price of the locality is not the main responsible. Their loss, but they shouldn't.
