The successful concert version of Verdi’s Falstaff, directed by Maestro Riccardo Muti, was the closing event of the homage to William Shakespeare. The audience applauded the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the cast, including opera stars like Ambrogio Maestri, Luca Salsi, Saimir Pirgu and Daniela Barcellona, Rosa Feola, Laura Polverelli, Eleonora Buratto in the roles of the Four Wives.
The performance of the soprano Eleonora Buratto as Alice Ford was particularly appreciated: her voice and the outfits she wore on April 21st and 23rd didn’t go unnoticed. The soprano loves fashion: everywhere she goes, she likes going shopping for clothes and shoes. On important occasions she often wears outfits created for her by the Italian designer Antonio Riva, who is able to turn fabrics into sculptures, women into alluring creatures.
She first wore a black silk column dress with short train and v-cut neckline; a black sequin band create an off-shoulder effect. A lavish and elegant evening dress enhancing the singer’s femininity.
Then Eleonora wore a coral red dress radiating energy. The bodice with deep neckline is decorated by a silk flower bouquet; the waist-line of the long A-line skirt is accented by a pleated band.
Giorà by Giovanna Raspini long pendant earrings completed the outfits.
