Set in 14th-century Castile, La Favorite tells the story of the hapless love between Fernand, who has second thoughts about taking holy orders, and Leonor, the mistress of King Alphonse XI. It is an intimate drama, where history and politics are but the backdrop to the protagonists’ passions and torments. Fabio Luisi’s conducting is both measured and personal, varied and vigorous. The orchestra is crystal-clear, neat in its accompaniment, neither subject to the voices nor prevaricating. Veronica Simeoni (Leonor), Celso Albelo (Fernand) and Mattia Olivieri (Alphonse) give excellent vocal and acting performances.

Notes in Italian and English.
