“Sous la direction de Tyrone Paterson, l’Orchestre du Centre National des Arts déploie
une forme remarquable. Le chef canadien parvient à atténuer les disparités stylistiques
d’une partition que Verdi avait révisée près de vingt ans après la création de l’oeuvre en
1847 sans toutefois qu’elle y perde au niveau des couleurs. Le soin qu’il apporte à
souligner la vigueur et les tensions qu’elle recèle et un plateau vocalement remarquable
constituent les points forts de cette représentation”…Forum Opera

“Il convient d’admirer la direction de Tyrone Paterson qui a su magnifier la beaut� d’une orchestration qui entre dans le tissu musical de fa�on angulaire.

Tout en respectant l’individualit� de cet orchestre, le chef accorde une attention particuli�re aux sonorit�s de chacun des instruments et laisse les chanteurs trouver leurs marques.
