Gramophone Magazine

March 2008

“First we must salute the 64-year old Leo Nucci's Rigoletto. Visually, the pathetic figure with the haunted, apprehensive expression will prove memorable, as well those notes and phrases which still proclaim him one of the most richly endowed baritones of our time.”

Penguin Guide

2010 edition


“Nucci's characterization of Rigoletto is justly famous...Beczala's Duke is splendidly ardent and self-centred...The stage director rightly chooses an authentic period...Excellent, vivid conducting from Nello Santi, but it is Rigoletto's haunted, staring eyes one remembers most”
