Verdi's opera Attila takes as its starting point Attila's plans to storm Rome with his army of Huns and the Romans' attempts to prevent him. As with Nabucco and I Lombardi, Verdi spiced up the action with a number of patriotic choruses, guaranteeing that - against the background of the Italian movement for unification - the opera was a great success. "Michele Mariotti owes much to the fact that this evening became a celebration of voices"(Opern-Kritik). Ildebrando D'Arcangelo is "perfect for the serious Verdi roles", Fabio Sartori has a voice of immense brilliance" (Opern-Kritik), "Simone Piazzola was an impressive Ezio" ( and "the real warrior of this Attila is the soprano Maria Jose' Siri ... with her voice, touching each primordial sentiment in every note of the opera, she commanded 'Attention' from everybody." (La Repubblica).
