Production cancelled due to Covid cases in the production team.
Some weeks ago, Patrick Kabongo caused a sensation at the Nice Opera coping with the demanding role of George Brown in Boieldieu’s La Dame Blanche brilliantly. Which was proved by the reviews too; some excerpts:
„Rossini-tenor Patrick Kabongo is enchanting with his velvet timbre and the suppleness which enables him to raise up to the high register“. Forumopera, 25.01.22
„Patrick Kabongo as the lover George Brown who loses his memory temporarily is even more impressive as his timbre unrolls a lithesome vocal line full of loveliness“. L’Humanité, 22.01.22
„This young, Congo-born tenor commands admiration for the achievement of his vocal instrument.“ Première Loge, 24.01.22
„Patrick Kabongo’s performance is the vocal rendition based on his long breath and his appealingly catching laughter“. Olyrix, 27.01.22
Patrick Kabongo is now making his debut with one of the major opera companies in Germany, the Badische Staatstheater Karlsruhe, performing one of his favourite roles, the Count Almaviva in Il barbiere di Siviglia.
Opening-night on March 26. All dates of performances.
