What’s next on Marcello’s calendar

Next on the calendar: Un Ballo in maschera in Hamburg

Latest News – October 7, 2014: due to the last minute cancellation of the scheduled tenor, Marcello Giordani will step in tonight, to sing the role of Radames at the Hamburg State Opera. For tickets and other information, please check the Hamburg State Opera website.

The Fall 2014 finds Marcello Giordani on the stage of the Vienna State Opera in a reprise of his signature role of Cavaradossi in Puccini’s Tosca, next to the Tosca of Adrienne Pieczonka in her role debut, and the Scarpia of baritone George Gagnidze. Later in September, he returns to the role of the revolutionary painter at the Bavarian State Opera, where he shares the stage with soprano Anja Harteros as Tosca and baritone Thomas Hampson as the evil baron Scarpia. He will return to the stage of the Metropolitan Opera in October to sing Radames in the spectacular production of Aida by Sonya Frisell, next to soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska in the title role and mezzo sopranos Olga Borodina and Violeta Umana sharing the role of Amneris. Giordani celebrates the New Year with two final appearances as Radames, followed by two performances as Calaf in a new production of Turandot by Opera Carolina in late January.

Verdi’s “Aida” at the Metropolitan Opera

On October 30, 2014, Marcello Giordani returns to the Metropolitan Opera to reprise the role of Radames in Sonja Frizell’s spectacular production of Verdi’s Aida which premiered at the Met in January 1988, and has encountered enormous popular and critical acclaim through the years. Because of its spectacular pageantry, Aida has been called “the grandest of grand opera”. But for all its grandiosity, Aida is also an “intimate” love story where the characters’ conflicting passions and emotions play against the broad background of patriotic and religious values.

Marcello Giordani, in good vocal form, brings to the stage a Turriddu somewhat rough around the edges, who... does not spare decibels, even to the detriment of a deeper interpretation of the character, but the outcome proves to be extremely effective.
