Rossini: Matilde Di Shabran, opera / Olga Peretyatko, Juan Diego Florez, Paolo Bordogna, Anna Goryachova. Michele Mariotti [2 DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

The opera that few tenors dare sing and which Flórez has made his own throughout his career. There are a lot of high Cs and more than a few elaborate rages. Corradino is head-strong and not too smart (well, he is a tenor). Though of course Juan Diego is nothing if not smart, and very famous for his high Cs. This combination of character and singer is exploited to perfection by Mr. Flórez in minimal moves and maximal voice and musicianship." - Opera Today (of the 2012 Pesaro production). Recorded at the 2012 Pesaro Festival, Flórez reprises the role that shot him to stardom in 1996 aged twenty-three. Conducting is the up-and-coming young Italian maestro Michele Mariotti who was praised for his pacing in this long opera. The performance also features the much-admired Olga Peretyatko - a fine stage artist and a consummate performer of Rossini's fiorature - in the title role. This DVD complements Flórez's CD recording of the opera, which won numerous awards in 2006.
