Teatro alla Scala: I Due Foscari (NR) Runtime: 2 hr. 9 min.
Director: Alvis Hermanis
Genres: Program
Starring: Michele Mariotti, Plácido Domingo, Francesco Meli, Anna Pirozzi
Here is Plácido Domingo's latest conquest: the leading baritone role of Francesco Foscari in Verdi's darkly atmospheric, melodically generous early opera, based on Lord Byron's play. Set in 15th-century Venice, I Due Foscari is the forerunner of Simon Boccanegra, and Domingo's triumph as the Doge set the seal on this critically lauded new production from Milan's Teatro alla Scala, the ultimate Verdi shrine.
