Verdi
I Due Foscari


Francesco Foscari - Plácido Domingo
Jacopo Foscari - Francesco Meli
Lucrezia Contarini - Maria Agresta
Royal Opera Chorus
Orchestra of the Royal Opera House / Antonio Pappano
Director - Thaddeus Strassberger

Recorded live at the Royal Opera House September 2015.

Plácido Domingo takes on the role of the tragic Francesco Foscari, Doge of Venice, in Verdi’s potent and dramatic opera of family loyalties and political intrigue. Thaddeus Strassberger’s powerful setting explores the corruption lurking beneath the opulent display of the Venetian court, with spectacular sets and stunning Renaissance-style costumes designed by Kevin Knight and Mattie Ullrich. Tenor Francesco Meli sings Francesco Foscari’s son Jacopo, unjustly accused of treason and forced to appeal to his father’s mercy, with soprano Maria Agresta as Jacopo’s courageous wife Lucrezia, determined to free him at any cost. Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera, conducts one of Verdi’s most striking early scores.

- Plácido Domingo stars in one of Verdi’s darkest operas.
- I due Foscari contains exhilarating forerunners of Verdi's later style.
- American director Thaddeus Strassberger, making his Royal Opera debut, depicts a Venice that is rotten to its core.
- Extra Features: Introduction to I due Foscari, Antonio Pappano discusses the music and a cast gallery.

What the press said:
