3 Works in Renato | Count Anckarström
08 Jul 2018
Continuing the series of "giving baritones a closure". This time it's Renato's turn. The setting is upgraded to early 20th century as it was in the 2012 Met staging because those costumes? Hella sexy. (Those singers? Also hella sexy.)
The immediate aftermath of the fateful ball and how Renato and Amelia deal with it. Renato's POV.
This is Italy, but not as you know it. The year is 1639, and France and its allies Spain and Belgium have invaded. People are starving, homeless, and helpless. Thrust in the middle of it all is a thief who is trying to live life as normal, but it is difficult when the threat of a revolution lead by the people looms.
