Theater Dortmund -Aida - Amonasro - 2018

Ich beginne mit Amonasro, gesungen von Mandla Mndebele . Er war ab dem ersten Moment an überzeugend. Er verlieh dieser Partie eine enorme körperliche Ausstrahlung und sang diese anspruchsvolle Baritonpartie auf höchstem Niveau. Das Duett im Nil mit Aida ist einer der Höhepunkte dieser Dortmunder Inszenierung. Bravo Mandla Mndebele für diesen Einstand in Dortmund und für einen der besten Amonasro, den ich in den letzten Jahren erleben durfte!
