Alberto Ginastera (1916-1983): Bomarzo, Op. 34 / Salvador Novoa; Brent Ellis; Isable Penagos; Richard Torigi; Julius Rudel, Chorus & Orchestra of the Opera Society of Washington

Notes & Reviews:

Alberto Ginastera, Argentina's leading classical composer, would have been 100 in 2016, and Sony marks the centenary with the first CD release of his opera Bomarzo. It tells the anguished true story of a deformed 16th-century Italian duke who, spurned in love and consumed by jealousy, demanded the creation of a series of fantastical sculptures for his "park of monsters". The role, created for a young, up-and-coming Spanish tenor named Plácido Domingo, is sung on this long-unavailable recording by the Mexican tenor (and Ginastera specialist) Salvador Novoa. Based on the 1967 world-premiere production in Washington DC, the set is conducted by Julius Rudel.
