5.0 out of 5 stars Oldy but goody
The stagings are stylized, but very effective. Similarly the costumes which are probably not accurate get by quite well and give an easy identifier of who is on each side.
I love Cheryl Studer, and she is a fine Elena, she has a clear and mellow soprano which sits easily on my ear. Zancanaro is very good in this role, he has rather a hard voice, it is well suited...

This review is from: Verdi: I Vespri Siciliani [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
The stagings are stylized, but very effective. Similarly the costumes which are probably not accurate get by quite well and give an easy identifier of who is on each side.
I love Cheryl Studer, and she is a fine Elena, she has a clear and mellow soprano which sits easily on my ear. Zancanaro is very good in this role, he has rather a hard voice, it is well suited here to his character. Chris Merritt is another of my favourites, his clear tenor is a delight. I am not really familiar with Furlanetto, but his baritone is easily voiced and makes for easy listening.
The minor characters are equally good and well cast. The chorus do a fine job and are crisp and clear.
The act 2 dancers are also a treat, that is until the girls are abducted.
The booklet has a full libretto as well as a comprehensive synopsis. The sections however are not numbered and cannot be related to the act headliners, a minor point really.

I dont understand why this opera isnt more popular
the music is fantastic. disappointing ending youll see why

This review is from: Verdi: I Vespri Siciliani [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
Lively and involving performance (it is La Scala after all!) Principals excellent if lead tenor not the strongest (still very good). Orchestra under Muti in sparkling form. Zancanaro makes a kindly villain, (sometimes the villain has a more attractive character than the supposed 'goodies' certainly in Verdi)
