This live-production from Salzburg Festival 2008 with Ricardo Muti, one of the best Verdi conductors, and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, features young singers Marina Poplavskaya and Stephen Costello, who received raving reviews! A new production from Stephen Langridge, known from successful production London's Royal Festival Hall, Tokio and Bregenz.
Marina Poplavskaya was clearly \the queen of this operatic performance", as the eminent critic Joachim Kaiser put it in the Suddeutsche Zeitung, and perhaps the most dazzling discovery of this Salzburg Festival production of Verdi's "Otello."
"An amazing range, with fresh young lows and girlish highs, full, glowing middle and high registers, a timbre of silk, champagne and sandpaper, a great lyrical-dramatic soprano," wrote Berlin's Tagesspiegel on Marina Poplavskaya."
