Michelle DeYoung embarks on a European tour of Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle
Bravissima to Michelle DeYoung who reached the mid-point of an epic European tour of Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle with the Philharmonia Orchestra at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The orchestra was conducted by Esa Pekka Salonen and Sir John Tomlinson starred alongside her as Bluebeard.
The tour has already visited Birmingham, Lisbon, Madrid, Vigo and Basingstoke with Vienna, Dortmund, Dijon and Paris to come.
The performance will be recorded by the Philharmonia Orchestra for release on their in-house label.
…while DeYoung…focused the drama superbly, she a wonderful mix of naivety and obsession… Andrew Clements, The Guardian, 24th October 2011
…musically it was excellent. Michelle DeYoung dealt nimbly with Judith’s declamatory lines.
