C Major continues their Tutto Verdi project with a production of Stiffelio from the Teatro Regio di Parma.
Stiffelio was based on the play Le pasteur, ou L'évangile et le foyer by Émile Souvestre and Eugène Bourgeois and was originally censored due to it involving as it does a Protestant minister of the church with an adulterous wife.
SUBTITLES: ITALIAN (ORIGINAL LANGUAGE), ENGLISH, GERMAN, FRENCH, SPANISH, CHINESE, KOREAN, JAPANESE
“The golden timbre of Roberto Aronica graces the title role...His commanding tenor makes one sit up and listen, with some notable long-breathed phrasing and a smooth legato a joy to hear...[Yu Guanqun's] is a rich, true lyric soprano with a glint of steel and strong, even emission in the upper register...[Frontali] sings with great command of Verdian shape and line”
