Giuseppe Verdi

 

Giuseppe Verdi
AIDA
Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Firenze, 2011


Soloists: Roberto Tagliavini, Luciana D’Intino, He Hui
Orchestra, Chorus: Orchestra e Coro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino
Conductor: Zubin Mehta
Director: Ferzan Ozpetek

Zubin Mehta conducts Aida, Verdi’s most spectacular and over-the-top opera, in a new production from the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. Starring Marco Berti, Luciana D’Intino and Hui He. Verdi’s Aida is one of the most popular operas of all time. It premiered at the Cairo Opera House on Christmas Eve, 1871, and was an immediate commercial success. The plot of Aida is filled with political intrigue, love, betrayal, passion, and vengeance, and has captivated audiences for generations. What piqued general curiosity about this new production of Aida was undoubtedly the operatic debut of Ferzan Ozpetek, a Turkish auteur who, after settling in Italy as a student, has become one of the most prominent directors of Italian cinema in the last decade, directing acclaimed films as “La finestra di fronte” (Facing Windows) and “Mine Vaganti” (Loose Cannons).
