extraordinarily moving performance
17 March 2007 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

This is an extraordinarily moving performance.

The acting (overacting) is done to perfection. Probably my favourite scene is Monterones curse -- its so... hummm... Italian. Then there is Rigoletto's own curse scene (ce vendetta) with the delicious taste of revenge where Rigoletto is virtually drooling at the prospect of his revenge. For amusement count how many characters say "vendetta". Then there is Gilda's sad, virtuous, and self sacrificing nature and her cute little hat. The dramatic irony(s). The force of Andrea Silvestrelli performance of Sparafucile. The death scene sends shivers up my spine. The joyous performance of Marcelo Alvarez as the Duca di Mantova, who genuinely appears to be enjoying his playboy existence.

The entire cast is amazing. Everything, from Cesare Lana performance of Monterone's curse, to the demonic look on the face of the conductor during the final chords. Absolutely beautiful.

The costumes are wonderful, but -- the visual editing is a bit choppy in places. There are scene in which the actors on stage are moving in slow motion... The video quality is not particularly good and there is a light spot on the screen in virtually every scene. The microphones on most of the lead characters are visible...

but the music is perfection and to tell the truth, I bought it to listen to, so the visuals aren't that important. I've listened to other performances of Rigoletto but this one I think is the best in terms of sound quality that I have heard (Pavoratti did not make a convincing playboy Duke).
