Ildar Abdrazakov takes the title role in Arturo Gama's production of Verdi's opera, recorded at Saint Petersburg's famous Mariinsky Theatre in 2013. Valery Gergiev leads the orchestra, while other cast members include Vladislav Sulimsky, Anna Markarova and Sergei Skorokhodov.
Ildar Abdrazakov bestrides the stage like a colossus and sings with firmness and grandeur, though the fine Verdian baritone of Vladislav Sulimsky offers a keen challenge as Ezio. Anna Markarova is vocally and dramatically fearless as Odabella, launching herself confidently at the demanding writing with which Verdi characterises this warrior maiden ... Valery Gergiev marshals his Mariinsky forces with vigour. --BBC Music Magazine (UK)

The production is traditional and really enjoyable with excellent use of lighting and good sets.
Gergiev and the Mariinsky orchestra are superb in this repertoire producing a tingling performance from start to finish. All of the main soloists are outstanding, singing and acting to perfection.
A must buy for Verdi lovers.

The excellent orchestra and chorus of the Mariinsky are led by Valery Gergiev in this enthusiastic rather than subtle performance. Sets, costumes and Regie are nicely underdone compared to the Met 2010 overreaching production.
There is much reference to Odin, Valhalla and all that Wagner territory stuff. The play from which this opera was taken "Attila, Konig der Hunnen" was by the highly idiomatic, far out German romantic poet Frederich Zacharias Werner. It is full of Norns, Woton (Odin), Fricka, and the whole cast of the Niebelungenlied of the Nordic Sagas. (Attila here is as Ezil) From this rambling Germanic mass, Verdi and librettist Solera (and Piave)have created an opera that is as thoroughly Italian as Chianti and pizza. I highly recommend this version of Attila. There are tunes to whistle and melodies to hum.
the Odabella role , as the daugter of the lord of Aquileja , Anna Macarova is the weakest link for me not a studdy voice , and not a great astress .
but all the others are realy great singers with caracter , and the chorus did a good job to ! mister Valery Gergiev nows the nusic of Verdi as the best
so , 5 stars for the bass I ldar Abdrazakov .
But it is still a opera to have in your collection , and gett yourself the blu-ray , the sound is fantastic !
