Description

The Metropolitan Opera’s Peabody and Emmy Award®-winning series The Met: Live in HD continues to excite audiences around the globe. Simon Boccanegra was one of the highly-requested productions now available on DVD. Four decades into a legendary Met career, tenor Plàcido Domingo makes history singing the title role in Verdi’s gripping political thriller, which is written for a baritone. Adrianne Pieczonka, Marcello Giordani, and James Morris are his co-stars in this moving and tragic story of a father and his lost daughter. James Levine conducts.
The DVD includes special features such as backstage interviews with James Levine, Adrianne Pieczonka, Marcello Giordani, Plácido Domingo, and James Morris.

Reviews

“Adrianne Pieczonka brings strength and lyricism to an Amelia more purposively acted than usual.”

BBC Music Magazine, May 2011

“Adrianne Pieczonka’s Amelia runs him close indeed, and to my mind she not only dominated the first scene in Act 2 in her two duets with Adorno and Simon respectively where sparks continually fly, but her stage-presence is majestically commanding and arresting.  … There are at present no less than five versions from which one can make a choice, but this February 2010 showstopper from the Met is certainly up there with the very best.”
