The performance also stars Deutsche Grammophon recording artist mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča, in "a fantastic display of bel canto" (Opera News) as Anna's rival, Giovanna Seymour (Jane Seymour). Ildebrando D'Arcangelo brings his beautifully dark tone to the role of Enrico (Henry VIII) and young Italian tenor Francesco Meli sings the demanding role of Lord Percy with a "youthful virility" (Agence France Press), promising great things for the future. On the podium Evelino Pidò "drew playing of unusual precision and refinement...making every note matter" (Financial Times).
Ironically, he sang against Netrebko at the Met and was wonderful.
The music is outstanding, all performers sing outstandingly, the choir and orchestra are outstanding, the production is outstanding.
Quick and dirty summary: This is an excellent production, very well conducted and directed with three superb leads.
