God bless Arrigo Boito

In the past days some fragments from Boito’s „Mefistofele” came to my mind. This man, though he was only Verdi’s librettist, was a genius. His opera is not a usual one: the music is unique and the topic is the pact with the devil, being inspired by Goethe’s play „Faust”. I remember when I was little like 5-6-7 years old, I was fascinated by this show (in Iasi there’s a great direction: the whole action is on a chess board) and when I watched this video I started to cry immediately.
