A powerful is suffocatingly murky Verdian performance
28 January 2006 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

A dark, brooding performance of this underrated Verdian masterpiece. Peter Hall's production is mired in the chiaroscuro which is of a part with the political dealings that form its dramatic core. However, there is little room left for the light and life of its more benevolent backdrop, the sea.

However, we are treated to a series of fine performances from the cast, including a fearless (last minute replacement) David Rendall and a critically questioned but strongly characterised Simone from Giancarlo Pasquetto. Peter Sidhom's Paolo is a spiteful political bully and Elena Prokina is an affecting Amelia. Mark Elder's husbandry of the LPO turns in a muscular, fiery performance. Impressive if relentlessly downbeat. 4/10
