Successful "Salome" in Montreal Features Nicola Beller Carbone

Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin is currently leading Opéra de Montréal in Richard Strauss's Salome with soprano Nicola Beller Carbone taking on the title role and the production is garnering wonderful reviews: "The Montreal Opera has a bona fide hit on its hands with its current production of Richard Strauss’s Salomé. Across the board, the cast is exceptional starting with German soprano Nicola Beller Carbone whose youthful and svelte figure made her perfect for the lead....Dramatically, Beller Carbone was convincing, especially in the ghastly way she handled the head of John the Baptist." [Source]

Salome repeats on March 23, 26, 28 and 31. Watch a video from rehearsals and see two production photos of the singer in costume after the jump. There is a lengthy questionnaire about Nicola, discussing everything from her professional to her personal life, that can be found here.
