Grand opera does not come much grander than this.
This heady production captures the queasy energy of Verdi’s music and the brooding claustrophobia of the scenario.
Animated by beautiful, sometimes breathtakingly subtle lighting by Anders Poll, this production is certainly saturated with the Opéra’s opulence.
The cast and chorus – and Maurizio Benini in the pit - have to work hard.
Maurizio Benini’s conducting inevitably lacks Antonio Pappano’s flair, but intermittently matches Herheim’s exhilarating theatricality.
