Jose Cura has opened the 96th season of the Slovak National Theatre.
A little tired, a little “stars”, not Canio on the stage, but Kura. There is no exaltation, no tenor cliché, all quietly stabbed and that’s that. He cut Nedda’s throat twice just to be sure… But seriously, feels tingles down my spine, the final turned out spectacular .
In his interview to Opera Slovakia website ( http://operaslovakia.sk/jose-cura-otvori-96-sezonu-slovenskeho-narodneho-divadla/ ) Jose Cura said that the “Pagliacci” opera is not about love, but about all of us, because life is so arranged that we all wear masks to hide our identity and become comedians.
