Presscitat

Don Giovanni (The Royal Opera, Stockholm), March, 2014

“Did I forget someone? Yes, of course: Ola Eliasson in the title role. A ravishing Silvio, a splendid Almaviva, an intriguing Malatesta and last August a slimy Alberich at Dalhalla are some really high-level role-assumption during the last 7-8 years but this Don Giovanni surpasses them all, if only with a small margin. Every gesture, every little facial expression was spot on and his singing encompassed all the various feelings and moods in the complicated character. Arguably the high-spot of the evening was his serenade, sitting with crossed legs and playing the mandolin, singing with the utmost simplicity, more to himself than to Donna Elvira’s maid. This was one of those magic moments when time literally stood still. A ray of light and calm and harmony suddenly condensed all the contradictory feelings of the drama. Go and see it!”

“Gérard was played by baritone Ola Eliasson and he was the best of the soloists, His voice was powerful, of great beauty, … and he was very expressive, especially in the most dramatic moments.”

”…det är Ola Eliassons Papageno som äger showen från de första till de sista dansstegen. Hos Eliasson finns skådespelande som bygger på timing och välrepeterad improvisation och en säkerhet i sången som håller samman föreställningen och ger den stadga.”

”Ola Eliasson som den romantiskt överspände poeten Olivier gör en utmärkt roll- och sångprestation.”

”…kärlekshungern värmer mötet med älskaren, Ola Eliassons skönsjungande Silvio.”

”In the duet we also hear by far the best baritone singing during the afternoon from Ola Eliasson, whose youthful voice, delivered with steady tone and melting bel canto, promises much for the future.”
