International Record Review

May 2013

“Nucci simply owns the role of Rigoletto...a master-class in vocal acting...Machaidze is the very embodiment of Gilda. Her characterization is simply marvellous...[she] has a lovely full tone - this is no canary Gilda - with 'Caro nome' poised and emotional...The supporting cast is excellent...I was highly impressed by Massino Zanetti's conducting”
