)-- The Life of Verdi: Starring Ronald Pickup
Kultur Celebrates Ronald Pickup on his 70th Birthday by announcing the release of the TV Mini Series The Life of Verdi, starring Ronald Pickup
Ronald Pickup is one of the all time great contributors in the pantheon of gifted actors. His portrayal one of the greatest artistic talents in Classical music, Giuseppe Verdi, in the TV Mini-Series The Life of Verdi stands out one of the best ever; Clive Barnes of the New York Post described his performance as done with “subdued, dignified passion.” Booklist Magazine called the film "Sumptuously costumed and splendidly staged, this elaborate cinematic biography blends documentary with drama to tell the story of a great artistic genius who became the musical voice of a nation."
His music is, artfully woven into the fabric of the program, and sung by some of the legendary voices of the operatic stage; Renata Tebaldi, Maria Callas, Luciano Pavarotti, and Birgit Nilsson.
