Giordano: Fedora

Add To Wish List + £24.99 - Item is discontinued.

Arthaus presents Fedora, an opera by Umberto Giordano, an influential composer of Italian verismo style. The staging was celebrated for its fantastic cast with Mirella Freni in the title role and Placido Domingo as her opponent turned lover. As the soprano in the title role tends to dominate the work and her substantial tenor counterpart is no less important, the performances of the two lead roles are important to the success of the opera. Who could be better suited to meeting to this challenge, than Mirella Freni, who shows her amazing ability as mature singer, taking vocal control of every situation and Placido Domingo, who, his perfect condition never faltering, takes advantage of all the opportunities presented by the role. Gianandrea Gavazzeni (1909-1996), whose familiarity with the verismo style was second to none, led the performance with solicitous authority upholding the tradition that he had received from the hands of his predecessors. This production created by Lamberto Puggelli for Mirella Freni at La Scala in 1993 became an enormous success, showing her as an operatic tragedienne with truly overwhelming vocal resources.
