Sat., Feb. 3 at 1pm on WKAR Radio 90.5 FM | Sir David McVicar’s exhilarating production of Verdi’s thrilling depiction of life on the edge
Verdi’s turbulent tragedy of four characters caught in a web of family ties, politics, and love is a mainstay of the operatic repertory. The score is as melodic as it is energetic, with infectious tunes that are not easily forgotten.
The vigorous music accompanies a dark and disturbing tale that revels in many of the most extreme expressions of Romanticism, including violent shifts in tone, unlikely coincidences, and characters who are impelled by raw emotion rather than cool logic.
