About

Three previous volumes of this series were dedicated to La Scala. In this fourth DVD volume, we turn our attention to another beloved and well-known Italian operatic venue: the Arena of Verona, which is able to host more than 20,000 spectators and endowed with acoustics that are quite extraordinary.

In this documentary, originally filmed in 16 mm, famed Italian journalist Enzo Biagi interviews the celebrity artists and directors who appeared at the Arena at the beginning of the 1980s, including Sherrill Milnes, Raina Kabaivanska, Fiorenza Cossotto, Mirella Freni, Rolando Panerai, Oliviero De Fabritiis, Nicola Martinucci, director Giancarlo Sbragia and set designer Giulio Coletllacci.

The DVD features excerpts from performances of Rigoletto, Aida, La traviata and Nabucco during that period of time.

Subtitles in Italian, English, French, German, Japanese and Korean.
