In his new life as a baritone, Plácido Domingo has triumphed in the role of Francesco Foscari in Los Angeles, London and Vienna. Now he takes to the role to La Scala, Milan, the theatre that is the symbol of Italian opera. I due Foscari, premiered in 1844, famously one of Verdis darkest operas, is staged by Alvis Hermanis, who made such an impact at the Salzburg Festival with ‘Die Soldaten’ and ‘Il trovatore’. Domingo is joined by two of Italys most exciting singers, the soprano Anna Pirozzi and the tenor Francesco Meli, and the acclaimed Italian conductor Michele Mariotti. The Financial Times was deeply moved by Domingos performance, calling his interpretation of the role sublime.
