We gave it a B

Crossover phenomenon Andrea Bocelli understands that romantic melody is the essence of Verdi‘s arias, and the tenor has a strong enough technique (and clarion high notes) to handle most of the challenges. He scores points for bravery in this ambitious set of 15 popular opera excerpts. The greats may have sung Verdi with more imagination and variety, but many a ”real” opera singer has done the composer less justice. B
