Michele Mariotti, Rossini: Matilde Di Shabran, Neapolitan Version, 1821 (2 DVD)
For sheer musical greatness, it is hard to beat "Matilde di Shabran," ... Juan Diego Florez brilliantly reprises the role of his first great success - New York Times
Following internationally acclaimed performances and an award-winning CD recording for Decca, Juan Diego Florez returns to the opera that few tenors dare sing in Mario Martone's production for the 2012 Rossini Opera Festival at Pesaro. Underpinned by a plot of "almost Shakespearean depth" (The Guardian), Rossini's melodramma giocoso features some of his most outrageously virtuosic vocal music, delivered here by Florez, Olga Peretyatko and Anna Goryachova under the baton of the Italian maestro Michele Mariotti.
