Although unusual and difficult to classify, Ponchielli’s spectacular opera is always felt to be a special event by opera lovers. The libretto by Tovia Gorrio, nom de plume of Arrigo Boito, drawing on Victor Hugo’s prose, sketches a dark and mysterious Venice, theatre of passional excesses and crimes, which is perfectly mirrored by the composer’s generous and captivating melodic vein. A historical fresco with Scapigliatura overtones featuring six protagonists, one for each voice type.
