| Nabucco (1985)
Nabucco was first staged in 1842. It was Verdi's third opera and first big success. In this television recording made at La Scala, Milan, the maestro Riccardo Muti hurls himself into the overture so energetically that he reminds me of Bugs Bunny conducting 'Poet and Peasant'. Everything is wonderfully over the top. Renato Bruson (baritone) makes a superbly wretched King Nebuchadnezzar. Ghena Dimitrova (soprano) as Abigalle really impresses; her 'Salgo già' is the high spot for me. 'The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves' is in this opera too. Musically, this is great stuff. I watched a second time and liked the production better. The sound on the Warner/Kultur DVD released in 2004 seems a shade below perfect but good enough.
