Gifted as both a writer and a musician, Arrigo Boito wrote the libretto to his own opera Mefistofele. Based on Goethe’s Faust and the eternal struggle between Good and Evil, Mefistofele is the pinnacle of Boito’s compositional achievement and has retained a place in the operatic repertoire. This 2008 performance features artists of the highest standing and was well received by critics: “[Furlanetto] brought real conviction to Boito’s occasionally surreal libretto, and his oaken voice truly filled the theatre”; “Giuseppe Filianoti sang with ideal smoothness of line and ingratiating tone”; “All the singers were well supported by conductor Stefano Ranzani, who paced the work well…”
