Parisian life, Opéra de Montréal

“A special mention to Miss Leila Chalfoun (Pauline) who, in addition to a great voice, has an irresistible comic talent. His participation alone is worth rushing for the few remaining tickets."François Tousignant, Le DevoirOpéra de Monte Carlo"What a delight when the operetta is served at this level of perfection! Here magnificently served by Gabriel Bacquier and Frederica Von Stade as well as the couple formed by Luca Lombardo and Leila Chalfoun in the "Tales of Hoffmann".

The concert was enhanced by the presence of soprano Leila Chalfoun, who sang three arias by Handel: "Piangero la sorte mia", "Julio Cesare", "Verdi Prati" and

“Tornami a vagheggiar” from Alcina. Each of the pieces was revealing one by one the qualities of his voice. In the first, the beauty of a robust sound endowed with a volume that lets the soprano sense its strength; in the second, grace and lyrical expression; and in the third, the technique and the gift of coloratura.
