From the Salzburg Festival
The Leticia Jarvis Art Films Series
Since her sensational success in La Traviata, the soprano Anna Netrebko, at the height of her popularity, returns regularly to the great festival hall of the Salzburg Festival. This time, Netrebko shines as Leonora in Giuseppe Verdi’s tragic opera Il Trovatore with Plácido Domingo as Count di Luna. The critics have gone wild: “A triumph” writes the New York Times, while the Neue Zürcher Zeitung praises the production’s “truly divine sounds”. As the troubadour Manrico, Francesco Meli next to Netrebko and Domingo, singing “clearly and elegantly, possessing such vocal presence” (Der Standard).
On the rostrum of the Vienna Philharmonic is none other than Daniele Gatti, who elicits undreamt-of cascades of sound from the orchestra: “employing the most fabulous colours, which the Wiener Philharmoniker savour in virtually impressionist manner, diligently and tenderly heeding every characteristic and every chord with skill” (Salzburger Nachrichten).
