Editorial Reviews

On the occasion of the 200th birthday of Giuseppe Verdi, Teatro Regio de Parma and Unitel Classica have joined forces to create a truly unique project. All of the composer's 26 Operas, as well as the Requiem - which is closely related to the Operas - will be performed and audiovisually recorded in and around Parma. For the first time ever, and just in time for the composer's 200th birthday, Verdi's Operatic oeuvre, which comprises the labor of more than 50 years, will be available in High Definition and Surround Sound and released on DVD and Blu Ray by C Major Entertainment. This unique project has been staged by Pier Alli and includes a 10 minute bonus feature with an introduction to the opera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good production in many respects September 1, 2013
By Peter
Format:DVD
I liked this production very much, especially the staging (by Daniele Abbado - yes, the son of Claudio A.), set & costumes, and the musical direction (cond. Michele Mariotti). There are some good singing too, not least from Abigaille, the leading lady, sung by Dimitra Theodossiou. Leo Nucci in the title role is OK, but he sounds perhaps a little aged (he was 67 at the time of recording). I beleive that there are stronger casts, but the production as a whole will disappoint few. There is some problems with the focus of the chorus in "Va pensiero" - they are too much in the background. I have seen two other performances of Nabucco on DVD - Arena di Verona from 1981 with Renato Bruson in the title role, and Wiener Staatsoper 2001 with Leo Nucci. The latter suffers from a very "stripped" staging with modern costumes ("eurotrash"), while the former probably beats the present production in many respects, especially regarding the soloists. But the sound and the picture are not as good as the present Blu ray. I have not heard (or seen) the Metropolitan production on DG.

3.0 out of 5 stars A very mixed opera and a very mixed production June 27, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The failure of Verdi's second opera " Un Giorno di Regno" in 1840 was one of the bitterest disappointments in Verdi's life. This on top of the death of Verdi's first wife Margharita Barezzi also in 1840 he swore to never write opera again. His chance meeting with the impresario Bartolomeo Merreli, his mentor and friend resulted in him considering a text refused by other composers of Nabucco. He again refused but later relented and this Nabucco is the result. Here he demonstrates a mastery of large choral forces, vocal contrasts and somewhat static dramatic effects (these will be refined in subsequent operas). All this captivated the audience in 1842 at La Scalla. It was and still is a triumph. In it we do not have the well crafted dramas that will begin with Ernani but we do have episodic high drama with massed chorus to move the plot along. We do have great vocal scoring for the three major characters: Nabucodonosor (later shortened to Nabucco) who is Primo Baritono (a voice type Verdi was always to favor), The High Priest of the Hebrews, Zaccaria, Primo Basso and Nabucco's evil daughter (later found to be a child of slaves) Abigaille Prima Donna Soprano. Audiences at the time liked biblical stories where good and God always win the day. And of course, the famous chorus "Va piensiero" of the Hebrew slaves found resonance in the struggle for the unification of the nation of Italy and the freedom from the oppressive Austrians.
This production is certainly a mixed bag. The one shining thing is the orchestra and it's conductor. This is the house orchestra of the Parma Opera House and in this recording really sounds great. (I've heard it under the direction of other conductors when the product was not so good) I assume it is the leadership of Michele Mariotti that makes the difference.
