Verdi: Aida / Maria Chiara, Luciano Pavarotti, Ghena Dimitrova, Juan Pons, Nicolai Ghiaurov, Paata Burchuladze. Lorin Maazel. (Teatro alla Scala, 1986) [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Who is the most famous 20th c. tenor? Which opera is the most acclaimed? Which conductor inspires most ingeniously? To these and other questions there are no unequivocal answers; rather, it requires individual assessment, and subjective appreciation! Arthaus Musik has undertaken an exploration to perhaps answer such questions. And many options are included in the new Legendary Performances series. The first 10 operas of this series bring not only the ‘big names’ but also many others – be it singers, composers, conductors, stage directors, scenic designers, and even opera houses.

This production was a triumphant success when it opened at La Scala in December 1985 with Luciano Pavarotti's long-awaited performance as Radames - his first in Italy - which was greeted with rapturous applause. In this live recording of that production, Pavarotti heads an exceptional cast with Ghena Dimitrova, Maria Chiara, Nicolai Ghiaurov and Juan Pons all in peak form.
