El argentino Gustavo Feulien da vida a Mario en “La leyenda del beso.”
La fase actoral de la zarzuela ha hecho que el carismático artista renueve su amor por el canto lírico. (Xavier J. Araújo Berríos)
“Gustavo Feulien made you wish that his character had more to sing”
“The Trial of Don Giovanni” to celebrate of the 225th Anniversary of the New York Supreme Court.
To commemorate the 225th Anniversary of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, a program originally created for the ABA by Shelly Finkelstein, “Don Giovanni: The Class Action“, was presented on October 19, 2015.
The singers were provided by Kennedy Center Award recipient Martina Arroyo who was in attendance.
NY times:Wearing boots and a leather jacket in Act I and a suit and
tie in Act II, the rich-voiced baritone Gustavo Feulien seemed
particularly sadistic as Scarpia, Tosca´s revulsion at his advances vividly acute in such close quarters.
Review of Tosca
"Gustavo Feulien looked good and sounded better as Scarpia. The
Argentinean import sang the role in its usual baritone register, and
had power to dominate the Te Deum scene. This was expertly paced by
conductor Dean Buck, who somehow solved the balance and resonance
problems in this warehouse space. largely by placing the singers in
one corner of the space, the orchestra opposite and the audience
(seated in a V) between. In the second act, Scarpia's loneliness at
his "poor supper" in the Palazzo Farnese was emphasized, with only
his flunkies and the offstage gavotte and Tosca's cantata (done as a
radio broadcast) for company.
Any empathy ended when Cavaradossi was brought in and the torture
started. (In another contemporary update, the silent role of the
inquisitor Roberti was played by a willowy blonde.) Mr. Feulien
gleefully chewed the scenery, his baritone rising to a dark roar.
Scarpia's lust for Tosca manifesting itself as he assaulted her not
once, twice, but thrice attempting sexual congress on the dinner table.
