The show

A giant…

 Since 2013, when he honoured us with a performance on our stage in the title role of I due Foscari by Verdi, the great Leo Nucci has often returned to Liège. We were able to appreciate his talent in his immense portrayals of Rigoletto, Nabucco and Macbeth.

A baritone from Bologna, Leo Nucci made his stage debut in 1967 in the role of Figaro (Il Barbiere di Siviglia) at the Teatro Lirico opera house in de Spoleto in Italy. Several years later, armed with a growing reputation, he made his debut at La Scala opera house in Milan where he played Figaro in the legendary production by J.P. Ponnelle. He has been the star of many productions under the direction of the greatest conductors: Abbado, Chailly, Muti, Maazel, Solti, etc. He has performed on mythical stages such as the Verona Arena, Covent Garden in London, the Vienna State Opera and the New York Met… His favourite role is Rigoletto which he has played more than 500 times triumphantly, thanks to both his singing prowess and the psychological dimension he lends to his character, confirming the adage: Art is nothing without humanity
