Notes & Reviews:

This is a BLU-RAY disc and it will not play on a standard DVD player. A standard DVD is available as AHM 101497. This stylized production by Lorenzo Mariani, features reduced decor but magnificent rococo costumes. The "violet-perfumed murderess" is performed by mezzo-soprano Marianne Cornetti, one of the most in-demand representatives of her vocal category. Opposite her, in the role of Adriana, is a soprano who as a Verdi and verismo specialist also appears regularly at all the major international opera houses, Micaela Carosi. The "cock-of-the-walk" role is sung by the world-class tenor Marcelo Alvarez. His timbre, velvety smooth yet robustly virile, is ideally suited to a vocal characterization of the idolized Maurizio. Conductor Renato Palumbo is very much at home with Cilea's operatic masterpiece, since the Italian Romantic and verismo periods are at the core of his extensive repertoire.
