In her first appearance at the Arena di Verona superstar Anna Netrebko excited a completely sold-out theatre. 1.3 million TV viewers in Germany alone watched the spectacular performance, a tribute to the revered master of opera Franco Zeffirelli who died shortly before the premiere. Zeffirelli created a legendary scenery within the Arena, one of the most spectacular open-air venues of the world with over 22,000 seats.

Groups of giant-sized armoured knights, a fortress turning into a luminous cathedral, an enormous choir, horses, breathtaking fights: Verdi meets Game of Thrones. The stellar cast of this production meets all expectations, including phenomenal Anna Netrebko, the Verdi accomplished baritone Luca Salsi as Count di Luna and Netrebko’s life and stage partner Yusif Eyvazov as his powerful-voiced opponent Manrico. Pier Giorgio Morandi conducts the Orchestra and Chorus of the Arena of Verona on this “exceptional night” (Klassikinfo).
