a review for Radamisto with Opera Lafayette

“An equally striking discovery was mezzo-soprano Hagar Sharvit, who was an outstanding Zenobia. In her showpiece aria in the first act, “Son contenta di morire,” she displayed remarkably even articulated runs, and had the extended chest range for Handel’s initial casting of the role for a contralto. Her vocal intensity went well with a forceful stage presence, especially as she alternated between spitting rage and tender sweetness in the cavatina “Empio, perverso cor!” “

“As for Zenobia, Ms. Sharvit had the depth of range
for a role originally written for a contralto. Her lyric
mezzo voice mixed eloquently with the strings in “Son
contenta di moire,” her poignant acceptance of death in
Act I. In another vein, she exhibited stunning vocal
intensity in her aria late in Act II, “Empio perverso cor,”
addressed alternately with vehemence to the treacherous
tyrant, Tiridate, and with soft-breathed devotion to her
disguised husband. The joyous duet of reconciliation
that soon follows to close the act (and leads to the
ensuing graceful dance) was also a happy union of two
voices that blended well.”
