La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( )

1 edition published in 2006 in Italian and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plot of Verdi's dark opera on the power of fate provides little comfort to its struggling characters, but it offers listeners one spellbinding musical moment after another, and it gives singers a string of marvelous opportunities to shine. Deborah Voigt gives a stirring performance in the role of Leonora, her voice effortlessly rising above orchestra and chorus.

Il trovatore( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in Italian and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Riccardo Muti conducts a group of excellent singers for a memorable Trovatore. In 2001, the centenary of Verdi's death was commemorated all around the world and of course in Italy, his homeland, where he died on January 27th 1901. The Scala of Milan, where Verdi saw many of his works premiered, marked this anniversary by giving a new production of Il Trovatore, even through this opera was performed for the first time on 19th January 1853 in Rome at the Teatro Argentina and not in Milan. The conductor, Riccardo Muti, who was the musical director of the Scala, decided to present a new critical version of the score, closer to the composer's first intentions. This version, which was controversial at the time, contributed to the interest shown in this performance in which the orchestra plays a key role. Muti provides a rendition of Il Trovatore that is full of ardour. Like a painting that has regained its colours after having been restored, conducted in this way Il Trovatore sounds brand new. In the principal roles, Barbara Fritolli, Leo Nucci, Violetta Urmana and Salvatore Licitra (Toscanini said that to succeed Il Trovatore, all that was needed was four good singers) are equal to the conductor's ambitions whereas the stage production by Hugo de Ana, which plays with shadows and obscurity, transports the spectator into a dream world
Un ballo in Maschera : opera( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in Italian and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transported by the baton of Riccardo Muti and the best singers, a memorable Masked Ball at the Scala in Milan. Conducted by Riccardo Muti, the master of the Scala in Milan for twenty years (1986 to 2005), the Verdian melodrama unfolds before our eyes directed by Liliana Cavani. This production, recorded live in 2001, is ageless, Cavani's approach being that of timeless tradition: pasteboard and period costumes triumph as if to prove that nothing changes at the Scala. In any case, musical excellence is pre-eminent as usual: to start with, the role of Riccardo is played by the wonderful Salvatore Licitra who began his career as a tenor precisely with A Masked Ball, in Parma, in 1998. As for Maria Guleghina, she plays an exceptionally good Amelia. The orchestra and chorus of the Scala, as well as all of the soloists, are transported by Riccardo Muti's passionate and contrasted conducting, proving once again what a wonderful Verdian he is. Libretto by Antonio Somma taken from Gustave III ou Le bal masqué by Eugenio Scribe
