[Domingo]: Whether as Rigoletto or Simon Boccanegra he has always convinced as an actor . . . Vocal strength, taste and expression were available in capacious quantities and quality from the other three principals . . . to give great delight to the audience and this watcher. Anna Netrebko sings wonderfully: creamy tone, excellent expression allied to create a wholly integrated performance. Add her trill in "Tacea la notte in placida" with tonal characterisation throughout part four and no wonder the audience went wild. Consider also her capacity to hold the vocal line, as Barenboim slowed the tempi and pointed the accents and her career in this, for her, newish fach is off to a flying start . . . [Marina Prudenskaya]: Her beautiful, smooth, even tone, ideal legato and capacity for vocal expression brought back memories of those halcyon years when Verdi mezzos of this quality were more common. No crude chest notes, just excellent singing in both of Azucena's arias. Matching her for vocal elegance and smoothness was Adrian Sampetrean as Ferrando.

Soloists include the great Plácido Domingo as Manrico, superb Russian soprano Anna Netrebko as Leonora and mezzo-soprano Marina Prudenskaya as the formidable Azucena. The characters burn with the passions of love, hatred, sexual desire and revenge that eventually destroy them.

  • Filmed live in Berlin, Anna Netrebko and Plácido Domingo star in one of Verdi's greatest operas, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim. Il Trovatore is without question one of Verdi's most dramatic masterpieces -- as well as one of his most melodic.
