Zaremba steals the evening in "L’Opera Seria" at Wolf Trap Opera

07.17.2016

 

 

“Stealing the evening, though, was Christian Zaremba as the dancing master, Passagallo.  Zaremba already stood out this summer, vocally and dramatically, as Collatinus, the husband in the stark, tragic “The Rape of Lucretia.” For “L’Opera Seria,” he donned bandana, sweats, leg warmers and a dancer’s floating gait, and, dragging nervously on a cigarette, fussed over every detail of the performance and came up with artistic “inspirations,”... Zaremba has the comedian’s gift of playing his role absolutely seriously, and he sings well to boot. I found myself wishing Wolf Trap would make Passagallo a recurring character, like Borat, appearing on the sidelines of every future opera performance with earnest suggestions and an occasional pirouette.”                                                              - Anne Midgette, The Washington Post
