Notes and Editorial Reviews
To celebrate Giuseppe Verdi's anniversary year in 2013, Dynamic have chosen to release on DVD Verdi's tragedy Attila, an opera which at the time was one of his most successful and won a lot of praise from critics.
Attila was Verdi's ninth opera and came between Alzira and Macbeth. As the subject of the opera Verdi chose the tragedy Attila, King of the Huns by the German playwright Werner. Attila explores a pivotal moment in history-the collapse of the Roman Empire under brutal attacks from the "barbarians" led by the opera's title character.
The Bulgarian opera star Orlin Anastasov takes the lead as Attila and delivers an amazing vocal performance. This production, the most modern on the market, was
recorded in 2011 from the impressive medieval stronghold of the Tsaverets Fortress in Veliko Tamovo, Bulgaria.
