Notes & Reviews:
2008 two CD digipak. I due Foscari (The Two Foscaris), Verdi's sixth opera, was written at a time when the opera scene was looking for new stage heroes, trying to escape the influence of that father figure of opera Rossini. Verdi discovered such a hero in the historical figure of Francesco Foscari, a man who had to flee into exile after becoming the victim of intrigue and murder plots. Nuova Era.
