Quote from: marvinbrown on December 14, 2018, 06:56:29 AMVerdi Fans......Ciao, come stai? Oh I am tempted.....anyone here familiar with this boxset? [asin]B07GVX9BPT[/asin] I am tempted because it is all the operas,in Bluray (great picture and sound), the productions seem for the most part to be traditional with some elaborate staging (maybe not as elaborate as the MET or Covent Garden productions but from what I can tell it is not Regietheatre which I hate. But how is the singing?, how is the action/acting overall? Any advice? thoughts impression? marvin

Quote from: André on June 21, 2021, 08:50:14 AMDepends if you prefer drama to singing. Not that Verdi doesn't realize both perfectly, but there's a world of difference between Rigoletto and Don Carlo, or La forza del destino and Otello...
Quote from: Biffo on June 24, 2021, 02:49:28 AMYou are not making it easy! Perhaps you should start with one of the most popular operas - La Traviata, Rigoletto or Aida
Quote from: VonStupp on June 24, 2021, 03:18:58 AMI do not claim to be a Verdi-phile by any stretch of the imagination, but these three recordings have given me great pleasure over a long time on different mediums.
Quote from: vers la flamme on June 24, 2021, 03:12:11 AMAny particular recordings of these that stand out? Honestly, I don't know the first thing about opera, especially Italian opera, but I am interested in Verdi.
Quote from: André on June 29, 2021, 06:10:33 AMI prefer Price's second recording (pictured above) to the Solti-led one. However, the best conducting and playing are on another version, that by Karajan and the WP (on EMI, not Decca). Freni and Carreras are overparted but both manage to turn their vocal vulnerability into totally believable dramatic performances.
