Concert performance in two parts, three acts, in Italian, with Hungarian and English surtitles

Of Giuseppe Verdi’s two dozen operas we consider to be basic, few people are familiar with Stiffelio, which then continued life as Aroldo after being placed in a different context – or rather, it was forgotten all the more. And this despite the fact that Stiffelio is a masterpiece, with excellent tableaus and strong scenes. Its demanding main roles paint a picture of the conflicts between difficult and nuanced personalities: a protestant minister has to make a decision after discovering his wife’s infidelity... Stiffelio is the opera of Christian forgiveness, even though the forgiveness arrives late: the other man in the love triangle is doomed by the very emotion that the minister is trying to overcome. In recent years, Stiffelio has been performed twice by the opera’s performers: the present production is aimed at the lovers of the piece and the composer, and all festival-goers interested in the operatic resolution of moral issues.
