“Bartoli‘s Nina is an extraordinary achievement - wide-eyed, unpredictable moods ranging from extreme introspection to writhing and hysterical cackling.... Bartoli has worked out a remarkable conception of a difficult, even unsympathetic role and carried it off triumphantly.“ The Sunday TimesThe eponymous heroine of Paisiello’s Nina (1789) had a far-reaching influence on the operatic taste of the Romantic era. The mad heroines of Bellini and Donizetti are her direct descendants. Driven out of her wits by the supposed death of her lover, Lindoro, the role of Nina offers a wealth of opportunity for histrionic and vocal fireworks.In this live recording from the Zurich Opera of a revival of Cesare Lievi’s highly successful production, Cecilia Bartoli triumphs as Nina, as does Jonas Kaufmann as Lindoro.Bonus Documentary: Giovanni Paisiello: A Forgotten Genius - A portrait of the composer
