Performed as part of the world-famous Arena di Verona festival, this memorable retelling of Giuseppe Verdi's classic opera features renowned Russian bass Evgeny Nesterenko in the title role, with supporting performances by bass Silvano Carroli as the Roman general Ezio and soprano Maria Chiara as the vengeful Odabella.
