“What a treat it is to hear an early Verdi score treated with the same respect as his later masterpieces . . . Muti elicits a beautiful, signing tone from the La Scala Orchestra.” — Opera Today

Overshadowed by Verdi’s bigger-name operas (Nabucco, Macbeth, La traviata), his 1846 opera Attila is based on the life of Attila the Hun. In the hands of renowned Verdi conductor Riccardo Muti, new life is given to this lesser-known work, shedding light on the pre-Nabucco genius of Giuseppe Verdi.
