Murder, frivolity and spiritual dignities: no other noble family has been embroiled in as many scandals as the Borgias. Conductor Fabio Biondi and director Emilio Sagi bring Lucrezia Borgia to the stage of the Palau de les Arts in Valencia, hometown of the Borgia family. Lucrezia Borgia is a story about a strong woman, aware of her virtues, holding power and disposing of her subjects. Lukrecja Borgia entangled in a network of love intrigues tries to save the only person she really cared for. However, the final of the story is cruel. Beautiful bel canto and the power of dramatic expression, as well as masterly directed directing, are undoubtedly traits of the extraordinary presented state of the work.
