Attila : By Giuseppe Verdi
BUDAPEST  •  Bartók Béla National Concert Hall  •  Ongoing

Giuseppe Verdi: Attila
Opera in three acts
Sung in Italian

Pier Giorgio Morandi, conductor

In 2013, the world celebrates the anniversaries of two giants of the operatic genre: the bicentennials of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner.

The Italian master’s early opera Attila, originally premičred in 1846, has never belonged among the most frequently performed of his works anywhere in the world. The story tells of the King of the Huns, who – according to the libretto – falls in love with the daughter of his enemy and perishes as a result. Along with Nabucco and The Lombards, this work fits into the series of operas created around the time of the fever over Italian unification, with no little reference to the contemporary political situation.
