Verdi and Boito at Ravenna Festival with Riccardo Muti

Following their most recent concert performances together in Tokyo and Stockholm, Ildar Abdrazakov reunites with Riccardo Muti for a program of Verdi classics paired with the prologue to Boito’s Mefistofele.

The Bashkirian bass will be heard in selections from Nabucco, Attila, Macbeth, and I lombardi in addition to his devilish signature role. The concert continues the anniversary of Italian-Japanese friendship with an orchestra that includes members from the Orchestra Giovanile Luigi Cherubini and the Tokyo-Harusai Festival Orchestra. Chorus members come from the Teatro Petruzzelli di Bari, Friuli Venezia Giulia, and Voci Bianche dell’Accademia Teatro alla Scala.
