This is a beautiful recording of a wonderful production. Although Domingo is singing baritone here (rather than his usual tenor), his stage presence and musicality ensure a competely convincing performance. Marina Poplavskaya is wonderful as Amelia, looking and sounding beautiful. Joseph Calleja sings beautifully as Adorno although slightly less convincing in the acting department. The production and costumes are spot on with the famous council chamber scene an absolute triumph. The scenes between Boccanegra and his daughter are especially moving. A must for any Verdi lover.
