‘Arabella’ at Wiener Staatsoper

Christopher Maltman sang Mandryka with his customary elegant phrasing, strong upper-range and honeyed mezza-voce. “Ich habe eine Frau gehabt” was especially moving. Maltman also managed the rapid patter of Mandryka’s presto passages with commendably clear diction.

Bachtrack  |  December 2017

The arguable pearl of the evening among the vocalists was Christopher Maltman (performing Mandryka for the first time in Vienna) in a meticulous interpretation full of nuance and distinct in diction […] His fruity baritone nicely spanned the role’s tricky demands, while serving a portrayal unusually unboorish and appealing – making this debut role an undoubted conquest.
