Introduction / Illustrated Synopsis / Cast Gallery


  • The first of Verdi's two late Shakespearian operas stands as one of the great masterpieces of grand opera. José Cura, ranked among the world's leading interpreters of Verdi's music, takes the title role in Willy Decker's profound and intense production, recorded live at the Liceu, Barcelona in 2006 in true surround sound and filmed with high definition cameras.

  • This is Willy Decker's acclaimed minimalist and symbolic production originally created for La Monnaie

'Verdi's wise, passionate score was served with precision, gusto and a keen ear for drama by maestro Antoni Ros-Marbà and the solid, malleable Liceu orchestra.' Opera News

'José Cura has the vocal colouring, the power and strength, but above all the dramatic temperament that this colossal Verdi character demands.' El Pais

'…the Bulgarian soprano Krassimira Stoyanova captivated with her sensational Desdemona. Hers is a lyrical voice of great beauty, with sufficient volume used with taste and transmitted with both sweetness and firmness.' El Pais
