5.0 out of 5 stars Rigoletto - Metropolitan Opera, 21 Mar. 2014
By

This review is from: Rigoletto: Metropolitan Opera (Mariotti) [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
Although, in my view, 'updated' opera productions don't work more often than they do, this one is totally successful. It's a worthy successor to Jonathan Miller's 'Mafia' production of several decades ago.
I've never seen a 'Rigoletto' production that brought out so brutally the cruelty and viciousness that so many of the characters display, including Rigoletto himself. Entertaining? Doubtful doubtful but involving,compelling, convincing and, certainly, an experience not to missed by any lover of Verdi.
The cast hasn't a weak link and it would be invidious to single out any one in particular. All were convincing looking and, excuse the cliche,with voices to die for.
I'm not sure it's available any more on DVD in UK, but if you haven't seen it yet and can get hold of a copy, don't hesitate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rigoletto in New York., 19 Jan. 2014

This is a vibrant modern adaptation with excellent singing and conducting. The subtitles match the period and make a much better explanation of the action than the usual usual stilted translations. This scenario is exactly how you might imagine the Duke and Rigoletto in modern day society. Verdi would love it.

This is the recording of the wonderful Metropolitan performance shown live all over the world. Both costume and scenography are wonderful as the setting is the casino world of the 1960s Las Vegas. If you only see one opera this year, make it this one!

Saw the show live at the Met, saw it in HD at the local Cineplexx and now on DVD. Innovative production, great singing. I love it.
