Idomeneo - 2. Festkonzert zum 10-Jahre-Jubiläum
2016-01-23 Oper in Wien, Vienna
"Bemerkenswert war der kurze Auftritt von Christoph Seidl als „La Voce": sein junger, noch im Wachsen begriffener Bass, verlieh der göttlichen Stimme keine donnernde, sondern mehr eine intellektuell-emotionale Beimischung – so, als ob man die Eifersucht hätte heraushören können, mit der die griechischen Götter sehr menschlich über die Menschen wachen."
