Notes & Reviews:
Juan Diego Florez stars in the only available DVD/Blu-Ray Version of Zelmira, filmed at the celebrated Rossini Festival in the composer's home town of Pesaro
the final opera Rossini wrote for Naples is a dramatic and musical tour de force and a magnificent showcase for the bel canto superstar of our time
Recorded in high definition at the 2009 Festival, Giorgio Barberio Corsett's production places the classical tale, set during the Trojan Wars, in modern times and modern dress
Joining Juan Diego Florez are a major international cast, described as "near miraculous" by Opera Today and led y American mezzo-soprano Kate Aldrich in the virtuosic title role
But the evening remained another distinguished triumph for Juan Diego Florez as Prince llo, whose arrival in his homeland, to rescue Zelmira, was marked by a "dazzling tenorial display" which "evoked a nearly twenty-minute ovation"
