Verdi: Stiffelio [Teatro Regio di Parma] Blu-ray Review

A rarely performed middle Verdi opera, this Parma production gives us a good reason to watch and welcome a work that will be unfamiliar to many operagoers.

Verdi: Il Trovatore [Teatro Regio di Parma] Blu-ray Review

Il Trovatore receives an understaged and mostly undersung performance from the Teatro Regio di Parma. Headliner Marcelo Alvarez is the main reason to watch this Blu-ray, but unfortunately, he is also the only reason to watch it.

Giuseppe Verdi: La Battaglia di Legnano [Teatro Regio di Parma] Blu-ray Review

Part of the Tutto Verdi series from C Major, this is a seldom-performed minor masterpiece with a terrific score.The opera receives a strong performance with this 2012 Teatro Verdi Trieste production and gives viewers an opportunity to see a work that will be unlikely to receive a staging outside of Italy.

Giuseppe Verdi: Il Corsaro [Teatro Regio di Parma] Blu-ray Review

One of Verdi's least performed operas, Il Corsaro receives a good if not great rendering by the Parmese forces and the principal soloists helped by the baton of maestro Montanaro.

Giuseppe Verdi: Luisa Miller [Teatro Regio di Parma] Blu-ray Review

Luisa Miller falls into Verdi's middle period and, unlike other operas from that era, is an uneven work, both musically and dramatically. This 2006 performance has a number of strong contributions from its principal singers and musical director who do their best to make a case for this opera.

Verdi: Alzira [Orchestra Hayden di Bolzano e Trento] Blu-ray Review

Alzira, a rarely heard early Verdi opera, receives its Blu-ray premiere with this concert performance from C Major. Uneven singing and the lack of staged drama undermine the impact of this production.

Verdi: I Masnadieri [Teatro di San Carlo] Blu-ray Review

A real rarity, Verdi's I Masnadieri presents a strong score well handled by cast and orchestra in this performance from the Teatro di San Carlo. The only snag in an otherwise worthy production is the bizarre staging and costume design.

Giuseppe Verdi: I Due Foscari [Teatro Regio di Parma] Blu-ray Review

I Due Foscari is a rare Verdi opera that receives the royal treatment from Il Teatro Regio di Parma. A musical tour de force supported by superb video and audio recording.
