I Lombardi alla prima crociata (cancelled)

Dramma lirico in four acts (concert performance) by Giuseppe Verdi

Wednesday, 14 July 2021, 7:00 pm
Ljubljana, Cankarjev dom

Verdi struck his contemporaries right in the heart with patriotic operas like Nabucco. Oppressed by foreign rulers, particularly the Habsburgs, Italians longed for the unification and independence of their native land. They also found reason to identify with the opera I Lombardi alla prima crociata (The Lombards on the First Crusade). Today’s listeners still thrill at the way that Verdi moulds a murderer’s penitence and the fate of a congregation into a unified whole with gripping solos and choruses.

About the performers

After Luisa Miller, I due Foscari and Attila, principal conductor Ivan Repušić continues his cycle of rarely heard early Verdi operas with I Lombardi alla prima crociata. Ildebrando D’Arcangelo, who already drew a convincing portrait of the Hun chieftain Attila, takes on the central role of the patricide Pagano. International stars Tamara Wilson and René Barbera round off the ensemble as a pair of lovers who overcome the barriers of religion.

Unfortunately, the concert has been cancelled. More information can be found at the organizer: Cankarjev dom Ljubljana
