The ruler of the Huns fully intends to invade 5th Century Italy until a fierce female captive enchants him with her defiance. In the popular imagination, Attila the Hun was a ruthless barbarian. But to Giuseppe Verdi, he was a far more complex and compelling figure: a brave, ambitious warrior tormented by fierce internal doubts. The intense, conflicted anti-hero comes vividly alive in this “vibrant and engrossing musical drama” (The New York Times). Bass Ferruccio Furlanetto, whose “strong, dark, textured voice filled Verdi’s lines with burnished sound and arching lyricism” (The New York Times), in the title role leads young Venezuelan soprano Lucrecia Garcia, “brilliant…magnificent” baritone Quinn Kelsey (San Francisco Chronicle), and legendary bass Samuel Ramey as Pope Leo I.
