Donizetti, OLIVO E PASQUALE, world prémière

Google Rank
The world premiere recording of Donizetti's sparkling opera buffa 'Olivo e Pasquale' is now available on CD, Blu-ray and DVD on Dynamic!
Filmed "live" at 2016 Donizetti Festival of Bergamo, has the part of Pasquale performed in the Neapolitan dialect. It is the story of two rich merchant brothers from Lisbon, Olivo and Pasquale, who
habitually weigh everything against its bargaining power. The
marriage of Olivo’s daughter and Pasquale’s niece Isabella is
also a “bargain” to them: she must marry another merchant,
so as not to break with family tradition. The gags between the
various characters are hilarious – especially those between
the two brothers, who have completely different characters
– creating an almost surreal atmosphere.
The show is very colourful, thanks to the rich sets and costumes. Olivo, performed by Bruno Taddia, is the real protagonist: as Isabella’s father, he portrays a gruff, inflexible man, and does so with self-assurance and ease, without going over the top. No less
convincing is Filipppo Morace as his brother Pasquale, histrionic
and exhilarating as an actor, musically precise and excellent in
his Neapolitan dialect performance. Laura Giordano, thanks
to her physique du rôle, is perfect as Isabella, the heartbroken
girl torn between love for the young Camillo and obedience
towards her grumpy father. This release is available in CD, DVD
and Blu-ray video formats.
