The climactic high B natural is as tumultuous as a tidal wave, but Carreras’s ability to then scale the voice down like a god calming the sea, is one of my favorite moments in this performance!

Streaming San Francisco Opera’s Louise broadcast will surely delight everyone who loves French opera. If you were in the theater in 1999, savor this chance to relive the glories of that performance. And if Louise is new to you, prepare yourself for enchantment, Parisian style. Amusez-vous bien!
