José Cura sings Pagliaccio (Canio)
Seng Hyoun Ko  was an amazing Tonio. Hellen Kwon weak-voiced, but good actor. George Petean was OK as Silvio. Peter Galliard  was a good Beppe.

José Cura was at times a brilliant Canio, I am sure that he will sing on February 25 much better. Premiere nerves, after conducting Cav (tired), and very cold weather in Hamburg.
