Press

“Ms. Opolais seemed to live with it, growing in stature as the evening went on and radiating the kind of aura – one that demands you watch her, and sympathize with her – that defines a star… She is a performer with a tremendous future ahead of her. New York will be lucky to have her.”

Tosca with the Berlin Philharmonic

April 24, 2017

“The Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais, as Tosca, is the best performer of the orchestra. Thanks to her sophisticated technique, highly attuned sensitivity and the skillful division of forces, it is hardly even clear that it is already her fifth performance with the Philharmonic this month.”

Kristine Opolais is “captivating” and “impressive” as Tosca with the Berlin Philharmonic

April 9, 2017

“And the soloists and ensemble also perform at the highest level. In the title role Kristine Opolais is a relatively youthful dramatic soprano, with a captivating technique and dreamlike security in the upper register. She lives her role with impressive intensity.”

{Und auch das Solistenensemble agiert auf höchstem Niveau. Kristine Opolais in der Titelrolle ist ein relativ jugendlicher dramatischer Sopran, von bestechender Technik und traumhafter Höhensicherheit. Sie lebt ihre Rolle mit beeindruckender Intensität.}

„Vielleicht werde ich mal Impresario, wer weiß!”

In einem Kaffeehaus unweit der New Yorker Metropolitan Opera sitzt uns Kristīne Opolais gegenüber. Zu Beginn des Gesprächs wirkt sie erschöpft von der Vorstellung der „Madama Butterfly” am Abend zuvor, die sie ausnahmsweise in nicht perfekter stimmlicher Verfassung singen musste. Doch die letttische Sopranistin und Ehefrau von Dirigent Andris Nelsons blüht im Interview schnell wieder auf, blickt mit ihren großen schönen Augen neugierig und Anteil nehmend auf das Leben, schaut kritisch auf den Opernbetrieb und hat dennoch Hoffnung, dass der Gesang mit seiner Verbindung zur Seele die Menschen reich beschenken kann, dann jedenfalls, wenn Künstler als beherzte Überzeugungstäter am Werk sind, so wie die von ihr verehrte Maria Callas.
