Verdi: I due Foscari DVD (La Scala) 1988

Renato Bruson takes the role of the Venetian Doge - Francesco Foscari - in Verdi's dark, three-act tragedy based on a drama by Lord Byron set in 15th century Venice. Gianandrea Gavazzeni directs the 1988 La Scala production of a work that is hailed among the best of Verdi's early operas, and that led him to a career of operatic immortality. Unlocked from the archives of RAI television, this is a classic recording from one of the world's great opera houses.
