Verdi requires rising to, at least as far as singers are concerned. This applies exponentially to masculine heroes: many great artists kept polishing a significant Verdi role until discovering the underlying human within the figure. For the miracle of the opera lies not in the sounds, but in the drama portrayed from those sounds – and this may seem a commonplace, but the big reunion happens scarcely. Verdi is slightly rigorous with men than with women heroes: more viciousness, more arbitrariness, however, hundreds of shades of the masculine soul which suffers and struggles may be discovered.
In the concert, between the compositions, informative reviews will be announced in Hungarian.
