Italian maestro Maurizio Benini's conducting is full of 'spirit and finesse', as one critic described the conductor of this performance: widely respected as a true expert on bel canto opera, he considers Donizetti's music to be a matter close to his own heart. This work, rich in beautiful melodies and boiling drama, was staged by Sir David McVicar, the director who defines the Metropolitan Opera's artistic image, with an amazing visual world that is faithful to the spirit of the setting while incorporating both familiar and astonishingly novel solutions.
The 'Metropolitan Opera Live in HD' transmissions have been made possible through the cooperation of our partner, Cikánek Management.
