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.

The excellent orchestra and chorus of the Mariinsky are led by Valery Gergiev in this enthusiastic rather than subtle performance. Sets, costumes and Regie are nicely underdone compared to the Met 2010 overreaching production.
There is much reference to Odin, Valhalla and all that Wagner territory stuff. The play from which this opera was taken "Attila, Konig der Hunnen" was by the highly idiomatic, far out German romantic poet Frederich Zacharias Werner. It is full of Norns, Woton (Odin), Fricka, and the whole cast of the Niebelungenlied of the Nordic Sagas. (Attila here is as Ezil) From this rambling Germanic mass, Verdi and librettist Solera (and Piave)have created an opera that is as thoroughly Italian as Chianti and pizza. I highly recommend this version of Attila. There are tunes to whistle and melodies to hum.
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 !
