Today Verdi celebrates his 200th anniversary and while the Met won't be presenting his work today, I would like to know from you guys what your favorite Verdi work is and your favorite Interpreters.
The following is a list of singers and operas I love from the great composer.
The singers I most love to hear sing Verdi are Maria Callas, Placido Domingo, Fiorenza Cossotto, Renata Scotto, Sherill Milnes and Nicholai Ghiarouv. I also enjoy listening to Giuletta Simoniato, Carlo Bergonzi, Anna Moffo and Giuseppe Di Stefano.
As for my favorite Operas I love Don Carlo for its incredible plot, music and its large scale. I love Il Trovatore as well as Macbeth. Attila, La Traviata, Otello and Luisa Miller are also among my favorite Verdi Operas.
Please post clips of favorite performances as well!
