The link below will take you to a complete performance of Verdi’s masterpiece staged yesterday in Aix-en-Provence. The show will only be up for a week. So if you’re interested don’t waste any time. The cast is headed by George Gagnidze in the title role. He’s very good as are the other principals. Robert Carsen’s staging is very effective. Of course, being in France most of the cast is obliged to take off their clothes at various points in the opera; but there’s nothing unbearable – sorry. The London Symphony Orchestra is in the pit. Gianandrea Noseda get a powerhouse performance from them.
