Giordano: Andrea Chénier DVD (La Scala) 2017

 

  • Opera superstar Anna Netrebko's performance as Maddalena di Coigny is the main attraction in this 2017 La Scala recording of Andrea Chenier, Umberto Giordano's devastating opera set in the traumatic aftermath of the French Revolution. With Yusif Eyvazov in the titular role, the inimitable Riccardo Chailly conducting the combined might of the Orchestra and Chorus of Teatro Alla Scala, and the visual splendour of Mario Martone's staging, it always promised to be something special.

  • "Diva Anna Netrebko... lent her luxurious soprano to Maddalena di Coigny. Her beautifully timbred and perfectly tuned voice shows a ringing top and easily fills the house with its volume." The Opera Critic

    "[Yusif Eyvazov's] voice commands the ample range and volume needed for the poet, and his singing evinced greater refinement and beauty of tone than has often been the case in the past, with registers blended skillfully and his tones emerging rounded and limpid in every phrase, enhanced by equally well-honed diction." Opera News

    "This production is beautifully crafted and full of grim period detail. Riccardo Chailly conducted with vitality and drive... an incandescent reading of the score." Financial Times
