“Apart from Rucinski's villain, the prime reason for seeing this Masnadieri is the terrific way Nicola Luisotti has with Verdi's score. He conducts a vibrant account and brings out the contrasts terrifically”
“This is an exciting performance. Gabriele Lavia’s steampunk production is stylish and plays up the violence and tension that underpin the opera. Nicola Luisotti’s conducting does likewise, as he is sharp and authoritative but also allows the music to breath naturally. The cast is excellent.”
