This taping of Verdi’s Otello features Latvian tenor,  Aleksandrs Antonenko and Russian soprano, Marina Poplavskaya as the doomed lovers at the heart of the tragedy.

These two young artists demonstrate both energy and freshness in their roles. Antonenko's sound is pleasingly ripe as he handles very difficult music without apparent strain, while his acting is spot-on. Poplavskaya’s voice is pure of tone and intelligently used. She is an asset to the lyric stage.

This Otello is arguably, the best of the lot recorded to date. The singers are all brilliant, costumes excellent and the Vienna Philharmonic under the direction of famed conductor,
Riccardo Muti, is musically impeccable.
