Editorial Reviews

In celebration of Verdi's anniversary year, the Mariinsky label presents a high-definition video recording of Verdi's Attila, led by maestro Valery Gergiev, produced by Arturo Gama and featuring acclaimed Russian bass Ildar Abdrazakov in the title role. A two-time GRAMMY Award winner for his Verdi readings, Abdrazakov has quickly established himself as one of opera's most sought-after basses. Since making his La Scala debut in 2001 at only 25, the Russian singer has become a mainstay at leading houses worldwide. Filmed in the Mariinsky Opera House, the DVD includes a stunning picture gallery of scenes from the performance. As is the case with many of Verdi's operas, Attila is imbued with the spirit of Risorgimento, the national liberation movement of the Italian people against foreign rule and for the unification of Italy. Looking ahead, Atilla is the first of four opera DVDs that are planned for release on the Mariinsky label in 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! an Attila worthy as Ramey's successor! August 18, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Of all of Verdi's early works (the Galley operas), Attila has received the most attention in the last several years. Now that we have Ildar Abdrazakov ringing, commanding basso contante who can float words of love as well as command a troop of wild Huns, we can understand the popularity. In America his recent Met debut as Attila in 2010 was widely praised as he encountered the great Ramey on stage as the saintly savior of Rome, Leone. Ildar's voice is smooth, powerful and eminently listenable. He is big of build, handsome of face and could very well lead an invading army. The present recording was made some ten months after the Met engagement, this at the Mariinsky in St. Petersburg. Here the Odabella is Anna Markova a recent member of the Mariinsky roster. She has the range, power and depth needed in this role but lacks polish and brilliance of tone; these will come in time. She does have big sound and could hold her own in the final quartetto with Attila, Foresto her lover and Ezio the Roman commander.(She stabs Attila and in the play stabs herself, but not in the opera). As the pouty, peevish boy lover of Odabella, Foresto, Sergei Skorokhodar has a sweet lyric tenor with just enough heft to hold his own with the other big voiced characters. Finally the baritone part of Ezio, commander of the Roman legions is not quite adequately served by Vladislav Sulinsky. He lacks the heft in his nice baritone voice and looks to be too young to be the experienced commander of the entire Roman legions. I think that with maturity and singing experience he could be a presentable Verdi baritone. However whenever any combination of these four players are singing they are exciting to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ildar Shines! October 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great Russian production of Attila. Ildar Abdrazakov is a formidable bass in this production, and Anna Markarova plays a strong role, as well. I particularly like this treatment of Attila by the Marinsky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva Verdi!!! July 10, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I loved this production from beginning to end. The conductor and the singers were great. I believed that Attila stole the show, it is an opera about himself after all.

this is a rare production of a quite unknown opera of verdi , with a lot of verdi quality ,
the Odabella role , as the daugter of the lord of Aquileja , Anna Macarova is the weakest link for me not a studdy voice , and not a great astress .
but all the others are realy great singers with caracter , and the chorus did a good job to ! mister Valery Gergiev nows the nusic of Verdi as the best
so , 5 stars for the bass I ldar Abdrazakov .
But it is still a opera to have in your collection , and gett yourself the blu-ray , the sound is fantastic !
