A Verdi evening with Christian Thielemann

Christian Thielemann devotes this concert entirely to the music of Giuseppe Verdi. Subtle beauty is to be discovered in three ballets: the understated passion in the Ballo della Regina from Don Carlos, the dynamic Otello ballet, and the dances from Macbeth that capture all the dark edginess of the opera. The main work of the concert is the moving Quattro pezzi sacri, created by Verdi at the end of a long life as a composer as a kind of musical and religious conclusion.
