Lucia Di Lammermoor, The Met
The English basso Alastair Miles was excellent as Raimondo ( Metropolitan Opera, March 2015 ), the Lammermoor chaplain and Lucia’s tutor.

As Raimondo, bass Alastair Miles was a gentle Raimondo. He was subdued during the duet with Lucia, his voice tender throughout. But when he came in between Enrico and Edgardo after the sextet, his voice boomed throughout the theater as the man of reason. However, he was frail in his “Oh! Qual funesto avvenimento!” He sang quietly, almost as if he was afraid to relate what he had just seen, thus forcing the listener in and adding greater suspense to the narration.
