Poliuto DVD 2015

Sale price£25.00

Glyndebourne has brought to light a long-overlooked winner in Donizetti’s Poliuto, delivering ‘a superb musical performance’ (The Telegraph) offering ‘lucent accounts of the principal roles and an incandescent London Philharmonic Orchestra, under Enrique Mazzola’ (New York Times). This first-ever professional UK staging of the story of third-century Armenian martyr St Polyeuctus features a ‘trio of world-class young singers’ with Beverly Sills and Richard Tucker-award winning Fabiano displaying a ‘thrilling, vibrant tone’ in the title role, Martínez providing Paolina with ‘pinging coloratura’ and Golovatenko giving a ‘radiant-toned’ voice to Severo (The Guardian).

"Fabiano [is] febrile and fanatical as the eponymous Christian martyr...Clėment’s loosely twentieth-century setting has overtones of Mussolini’s Italy and 1990s Sarajevo (so don’t expect any lions when the Christian martyrs go to their death)...I found its starkness most effective on screen" Presto Classical
