On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Italian unity, Ruggero Cappuccio staged a new production of Verdi's opera La battaglia di Legnano for the Rome Opera. Premiered in 1849, this work won Verdi a unique spot in the hearts of the Italian people, making the composer a living symbol of the struggle for liberation and unification. Leading the talented cast are Dimitra Theodossiou as Lida, Andrew Richards as the freedom fighter Arrigo, and Leonardo Lopez Linares as Rolando, Arrigo's best friend. Boris Brott conducts with the "fire needed for this patriotic opera." (Der neue Merker)
