Verdi - Otello
Starring Jose Cura, Krassimira Stoyanova, Lado Ataneli, Vittorio Grigolo, Ketevan Kemoklidze
José Cura has the vocal colouring, the power and strength, but above all the dramatic temperament that this colossal Verdi character demands.
— El País
Cura’s Otello is a performance that the Liceu audiences will remember for a long time: a profoundly felt, well considered depiction of a man’s descent into madness, paired with a true vocal tour de force. Cura’s tenor is sometimes strained and the sound is not always pretty, but his technique and the communicative powers are astounding.
— Opera News
The Liceu has done nice work in presenting ‘Otello’ with one of the best teams possible at present. To start with, there is José Cura in the leading role...Cura proved himself an excellent actor on stage, which, in this Shakespearean drama, is much to be thankful for. His powerful voice, moments of intensity and sense for the dramatic made for a role of great vibrancy.
