MASCAGNI: Cavalleria Rusticana ( Trailer) [2019 Opera di Firenze- MMF]

Google Rank
Mascagni’s first and most successful work has become an opera classic, featuring elements of Greek tragedy alongside religious and historical aspects. It’s a story of love, passion, jealousy and restored honour in bloodshed. Directors Di Gangi and Giacomazzi set this traditional Cavalleria Rusticana in a Sicilian village of the 1940s where the buildings are rather bare and the piazza is the stage for private as well as public drama. Conductor Valerio Galli is at the head of the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, one of the best in Italy. Good performance reviews for the whole cast:
“Elena Zilio is a well-centred and engaging Mamma Lucia, with a magnetic stage presence and an incredible expressive talent… Marina Ogii is a Lola imbued with charm and sensuality, with a warm and skilfully projected voice… Lorenzo Fratini directs the chorus which provides excellent and powerful contributions to the performance.” – connessiallopera.it
“The star of the show is Angelo Villari, who plays an impeccable Turiddu. Thanks to his warm and fiery voice, the Italian tenor adds credibility to a complex character, torn between passion and sensitivity… Soprano Alexia Voulgaridou portrays a perfect, melancholic Santuzza. She possesses an excellent voice – lyrical, dramatic and emotionally engaging.” – corrieredellospettacolo.net
