Mozart · Le nozze di Figaro
Santa Fe Opera
Kenneth Montgomery conducted, making the performance swell with emotion, dash with verve and sparkle with humour. Unhurried, and indeed, taking outright pauses at dramatic moments, he shaped the orchestral part with magisterial authority while guiding the singers as though he and Steingraber had worked hand-in-hand to shape this splendid performance.
