Ferruccio Furlanetto NEWS
“SIMON BOCCANEGRA” AT THE MET
On April 1, 5, 9, 13, 16 Ferruccio Furlanetto sings Fiesco in the “Simon Boccanegra” at the Met. He joins James Levine at the pit and Plácido Domingo as a Doge in the remarkable study of this Verdi’s opera.
Starting from his debut in 1980 Ferruccio Furlanetto gave more than 200 performances of 16 roles at the Met including Mephistopheles in “Faust”, de Silva in “Ernani”, Don Basilio in “Il Barbiere di Siviglia”, Fiesco in “Simon Boccanegra”, Philip II and the Grand Inquisitor (debut, 1980) in “Don Carlo”, Cardinal Brogni in “La Juive”, Leporello and Don Giovanni in “Don Giovanni”, and Figaro in “Le Nozze di Figaro”. They were highly appreciated by the public and press. “Mr. Furlanetto meets Verdi’s demanding, wrenching music with commanding power and moving vulnerability in both voice and gesture,” - New York Times wrote.
The performance on April 1 will be streamed live at the Met Opera web-site
The performance on April 9 (starting on 12-30) will be broadcasted live on the Radio as part of Saturday Matinée Broadcast season. You can find the station here
