Product Notes

NTSC/Region 0. This live production from the MET from 1984 of one of Verdi's finest and most challenging operas was conducted by Maestro James Levine and directed by Brian Large. An all star cast led by Sherrill Milnes - 'widely hailed as the supreme Verdi baritone - in the title role and Anna Tomowa-Sintow as Amelia Grimaldi. Baritone Sherrill Milnes gave a superb portrayal of the troubled Doge Simon, an his canny underplaying of the part was cause of deep admiration' (New York Daily News). 'Paul Plishka was a strong Fiesco' (New York Daily News). 'The set, costumes and lighting are superb." (New York Times). 'Levine's conducting serves Verdi magnificently; from the exquisite instrumental delicacy of the Act I prelude to the sweeping grandeur of the final ensemble' (New York Magazine). in 5.1 DTS Surround Sound. Universal. 2008.
