Rigoletto (2 CD) - Maria Callas
Verdi: Rigoletto (Mexico, 17/06/1952)(2CD)
Label: PRX/Warner Classics/Parlophone

Callas only sang Gilda inRigolettotwice on stage, in Mexico City in 1952, and this recording was taken from the first of those performances. She brought tonal substance and deep interpretative insight to a role that had sometimes been treated by light-voiced sopranos as an opportunity for coloratura display. Gilda’s father, Rigoletto himself, is sung by Piero Campolonghi, an Italian baritone closely associated with the role, while Giuseppe di Stefano, is the dashing, but unscrupulous Duke of Mantua. He partnered Callas frequently during her career – on stage, in the recording studio and on a final concert tour of Europe, North America and Japan in 1974.

One of the most popular operas in the repertoire, Verdi’s riveting drama was first seen in 1851 at Venice’s Teatro La Fenice. Together with his next two works, Il Trovatore and La Traviata, it formed the basis for the composer’s lasting success. For his new production, director Michael Mayer has moved the action from 16th-century Mantua to 1960s Las Vegas: “I tried to imagine a recent world that captures the decadence of the Duke’s palace, where the participants are in pursuit of power, money, and beauty,” he says. Las Vegas in the ’60s is such a world, where a kind of prankster energy could go bad.”
