Description
Full of pathos and drama, this heady and beautifully filmed production from Bologna was recorded in HD in 2007.

"Act I unfolded into a delight as sublime as it was unexpected. Her name is Carmen Giannattasio.... She has one of those fruity, full-bodied Italian lyric voices I haven't heard since the days of Gabriella Tucci and Adriana Maliponte. She has perfect vocal control. She can float a note, expand the tone with thrilling effect, and bind her phrases with the mastery of a Leontyne Price or a Mirella Freni. She is a fine actress. She floats across the stage like a dream. All of which makes her portrayal of Amelia one of the greatest theatrical experiences of my life…. Then our Gabriele, Giuseppe Gipali, entered. What a surprise! A real Italian tenor voice—bright as a new penny, steady as a laser beam, but also musically phrased and dramatically expressive….. This man should be snapped up by the Met ASAP…. His duets with Giannattasio are the highlights of this performance…. Mariotti is a simply exceptional maestro, binding the phrases and scenes of this opera as few others in my experience have done."—American Record Guide

"This Simon Boccanegra is what I think good production values should strive for with today's technology and vocal art."—Opera Today
