“The Croatian Bass-baritone Marko Mimica shares more than just a birth-year with tonights gifted conductor. He too showed a musical and technical accomplishment remarkable for his age. He excellently managed the tessitura and the fioratura which so often confound more experienced singers. More natural, ringing and full in the opening of Act III, his Italian was absolutely spot on in the treacherous parlando phrases which follow in the later trio. This is a new talent with great potential.”
