Notes & Reviews:
On the occasion of the 200th birthday of Giuseppe Verdi, Teatro Regio de Parma and Unitel Classica have joined forces to create a truly unique project. All of the composer's 26 Operas, as well as the Requiem - which is closely related to the Operas - will be performed and audiovisually recorded in and around Parma. For the first time ever, and just in time for the composer's 200th birthday, Verdi's Operatic oeuvre, which comprises the labor of more than 50 years, will be available in High Definition and Surround Sound and released on DVD and Blu Ray by C Major Entertainment. This unique project has been staged by Pier Alli and includes a 10 minute bonus feature with an introduction to the opera.
This Nabucco is another in the ambitious Teatro Regio Di Parma Verdi series, and it is a great success. Sets and costumes by Luigi Perego are simple but colorful, and Danielel Abbado's staging is to the point. Nucci is a commanding presence indeed, and his buxom feuding daughters, Abigaille and Fenena, sung by Dimitri Theodossiou and Anna Martia Chiuri, impress in these very challenging roles. Tenor Bruno Ribeiro gets better as the opera progresses, and visually is excellent. The important role of Zaccaria is magnificently sung by Riccardo Zanellato, at the beginning of what should be an extraordinary career. Conductor Michele Mariotti keeps things moving very nicely, and the important chorus also is first-rate. Video and audio are excellent. This Nabucco is highly recommended!
