Roberto Saccà pulls out all the tenor stops as Ferrand, in a seduction of lyric melifluousness.
Roberto Saccà was simply perfect as Ferrando, with his vibrant tenor timbre and Neopolitan fire.
Oasis of happiness: the Russian soprano and Roberto Saccà, protagonists in Verdi’s ²Traviata² in Cologne, actually sing rather than just act their way to credible youthfulness. Roberto Saccà is a slim young man, effusive, charming, affectionate, and also angry and irascible. His voice is supple, secure in the upper registers, and tells of happiness and despair, love and woe, with the ardour of a rich heart.
Roberto Saccà as Tamino gave a performance marked by ardor and vivid stage presence. Saccà displayed both affecting lyricism (especially in “Dies Bildnis”, when he first falls in love with Pamina’s portrait) and forthright heroism.
