PLACIDO DOMINGO AS 'ERNANI'
Verdi’s Ernani is a violent and sombre story of frustrated passion, honour fatally impugned, and ambition thwarted and rewarded, set by the young composer to a succession of irresistible tunes. For Luca Ronconi’s production, four of the world’s leading Verdi singers were engaged: Plácido Domingo as the bandit, Ernani; Renato Bruson as the scheming, dangerously suave King Charles of Spain; Nicolai Ghiaurov as the proud Spanish Grandee whose implacable sense of honour propels the action to its tragic conclusion; and Mirella Freni as the gentle heroine desired by these three rivals.
