Cecilia about 'Iphigénie en Tauride'

An article in 'Crescendo', in French.

Only a few points for those who don't know any French:

She's fascinated first of all by the balance of text and music. She finds Gluck's Iphigénie much more human compared to the cold Greek statue. She's looking forward to her debut, especially the role in French by Gluck to whom she always returns.

She answers to the question, how 'Iphigénie' fits into her Salzburg programm: She likes to show the great female characters (then she dives deeper into Gluck as one of the predecessors for Mozart, sorry, too many details).

Cecilia compares Goethe's and Gluck's Iphigénie and finds Gluck's much more lively, more passionate, a character that acts on its own.


By the way: Have a happy and healthy start into the new year to all of you! :)
