Jodie Devos - Offenbach Colorature - Opera Now
Her high soprano is brightly-hued, with a surprisingly strong lower register, and she relishes the coloratura as she dispatches numbers from Orphée aux Enfers and Les Contes d’Hoffmann, and a plethora of lesser-known pieces. Laurent Campellone conducts the Munich Radio Orchestra with appropriate brio, keeping rhythms springy and textures light. The whole enterprise almost requires a health warning as you will be afflicted with serious earworm for days. In fact, make that weeks.
