Claudio Abbado conducts a Verdi gala for the 2000 New Year’s Eve Concert

The music of Giuseppe Verdi is very close to Claudio Abaddo’s heart – he led La Scala in Milan from 1968 to 1986, the worldwide centre of Verdi interpretation. In this New Year’s Eve Concert, audiences were able to discover this side of the conductor, with excerpts from Rigoletto, La Traviata and Falstaff. Abbado was joined by leading Verdi singers, including Andrea Rost, Ramón Vargas and Alan Titus.
