About

This centenary performance of Umberto Giordano’s Marcella was prepared from the composer’s manuscript, the score and parts having been destroyed during World War II.

Recalling Verdi’s 'La Traviata' and Puccini’s 'La Rondine', as well as Giordano’s own 'Andrea Chenier' and 'Fedora', Marcella is the story of a poor girl and a painter whose idyllic affair is shattered when events reveal that her true love is actually a prince incognito.

Serena Daolio and Danilo Formaggia make an attractive couple … Formaggia sings the role [of Giorgio] with enviable freedom and certainly relishes Giordano’s long-lined melodies … The supporting cast are all well cast, providing good support in the ensembles in the opening scene … a fine, creditable account of an interesting rarity.” - MusicWeb International
