The Swedish baritone
Peter Mattei counts among the great singers of our times. Anyone who saw the
Michael Haneke production of Don Giovanni will remember the
fascinating and no less terrifying predator he portrayed in the title role of
the Mozart opera at Bastille in 2006. Now he returns to the same stage in the
guise of Pushkin's dandy in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene
Onegin—a part he has played in theatres around the world. We asked him to
share his highly personal view of that role.
