Donizetti: Lucrezia Borgia
Format: DVD VIDEO
ORCHESTRA GIOVANILE LUIGI CHERUBINI CORO MUNICIPALE DI PIACENZA FRIZZA, MARKO MIMICA
Gaetano Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia is a dark and scandalous tale of murder and excess. Initially criticised for its audacious nature, the opera has since become appreciated as one of the great masterpieces of Italian bel canto repertoire with glorious arias and stirring choruses. Created using Roger Parker’s new critical edition and with acclaimed soprano Carmela Remigio in the title role, Andrea Bernard’s spectacular Donizetti Festival production is ‘gripping and intense at every moment… this production ranks among the best all year’ (operawire.com).
