VERDI, G.: Rigoletto [Opera] (Bregenz Festival, 2019) (NTSC) 751608
VERDI, G.: Rigoletto [Opera] (Bregenz Festival, 2019) (Blu-ray, HD) 751704

The often jaw-dropping drama of Bregenz Festival’s floating stage-sets generally makes for a striking visual feast: a great performance makes this a treat for the ears too. © 2020 Gramophone

VERDI, G.: Rigoletto [Opera] (Bregenz Festival, 2019) (NTSC) 751608
VERDI, G.: Rigoletto [Opera] (Bregenz Festival, 2019) (Blu-ray, HD) 751704

French Soprano Mélissa Petit as Gilda manages to sing seductively while hanging off this basket fifty feet in the air… She is fresh-voiced, charming and credible to the extent that you think about the singing rather than the mechanics. And the singing is very good indeed.

Bulgarian baritone Vladimir Stoyanov is something of a Verdi expert, and his Rigoletto is secure and powerful. © 2020 MusicWeb International Read complete review

VERDI, G.: Rigoletto [Opera] (Bregenz Festival, 2019) (Blu-ray, HD) 751704

Vladimir Stoyanov’s Rigoletto is wonderfully played, moving in the extreme, and beautifully sung. His baritone offers golden tone and legato that also remind one of singers of yore. © 2020 Classical Music
