Notes and Editorial Reviews

Roberto de Simone's production of Verdi's epic opera Nabucco opened the 1986-87 season at La Scala and marked Riccardo Muti's return as Music director of Italy's greatest opera house. It was Nabucco that firmly established Verdi as the voice of the Italian people and in particular Va, pensiero, the great chorus of longing sung by the exiled Hebrews on the banks of the Euphrates. Starring Renato Bruson, Ghena Dimitrova, Paata Burchuladze, Bruno Beccaria, and Raquel Pierotti. Conducted by Riccardo Muti. Sung in Italian, with subtitles available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish. NTSC, Region 1, Full Screen 4:3, Dolby Digital Stereo.

 Bruson is great; Dimitrova not so much January 7, 2017 By Joseph A. De Vito, Sr. (Bridgton, ME) See All My Reviews "My benchmark for this opera is the London CD with Gobbi and Suliotis. In the DVD we are speaking of here, Bruson is a credible Nabucco. Dimitrova does not always execute the "gut-busting" octave leaps that the composed intended for Abigaille. Some of Muti's tempi are preposterously fast, but all in all the orchestra is excellent." Report Abuse
