Attila at 20.00, during and after Andrea Chenier I had a bit of a head-ache, but to my amazement, I found out that a GREAT opera performance can cure that.
Ruggero Raimondi, was a great Attila, but Nesterenko was better in the video from Verona, I think. Mara Zampieri has the most beautiful voice, and sang the difficult and vocally demanding role of Odabella, in the most exquisite way. Leo Nucci was much better than I would have thought possible for him. Boiko Zwetlanov was as good as anyone singing Forest.
