I just watched the Russian Kultura TV channel, which reported favourably on tonight's big company premiere of Pierre Lacotte's MARCO SPADA, to the Auber score. Huge triumphs for Hallberg in the title role, Obraztsova as his daughter Anzhela, and Smirnova as the aristocratic Marquise. Tonight's Kultura report is not yet on YouTube but I found this earlier report on the preparations. Enjoy!
Congratulations to Lacotte and to all of the wonderful artists in tonight's premiere performance!
