Ian Lace
MusicWeb International, May 2013

This production has very minimalistic sets. The costumes are very good…

…Verdi in this case gives his singers very taxing roles and this cast rises to its challenges especially buxom Violetta Urmana who is extraordinarily persuasive as Leonora…her strong, intense delivery consistently grips. The roles of the bitterly clashing Don Alvaro—tenor, Marcello Giordani—and Leonora’s brother, Don Carlo di Vargas sung by baritone, Carlo Guelfi are well cast. Their solo arias are forceful and their duets powerfully dramatic. The two voices contrast and blend most strikingly. Roberto Scandiuzzi is a suitably solemn Padre Guardiano. The whole is directed with great vigour by Mehta.

…a powerful La Forza Del Destino. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
