Verdi: Don Carlo (Teatro Regio, Torino)
Ramón Vargas (Don Carlo ); Svetlana Kasyan (Elizabeth); Ildar Abdrazakov (Filippo II ); Ludovic Tézier (Rodrigo); Daniela Barcellona (Princess Eboli); Marco Spotti (Grand Inquisitor);
Teatro Regio’s 2013 revival of their highly successful 2006 production of Verdi’s Don Carlo celebrates the 40th anniversary of the theatre’s reopening in 1973. With traditional staging and lavish costume design, the production garnered high acclaim in the national and international press, with GB Opera commending the ‘sumptuous’ setting and French online music magazine ResMusica praising director Hugo de Ana’s decision to revive the show ‘in all its splendour’. Shown here in the four-act version, Don Carlo is the fascinating tale of father-son power struggles, adultery and love that borders on incest. The cast – under the powerful baton of Gianandrea Noseda – is headed by renowned Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas, and also features Ludovic Tézier, who has been hailed as ‘one of the best Verdian singers of our time’ (ResMusica).
"Without doubt, the Argentinian director’s [Hugo de Ana] production is one of the best around…" (Liricamente)
"More than satisfying was the musical part under the excellent conductor Gianandrea Noseda" (Corriere della sera)
"Gianandrea Noseda leads the Orchestra of the Teatro Regio expertly and securely, exuding rich colours and details especially in the wind section which is so important for the organic structure of this Verdian masterpiece." (Liricamente)
