Notes & Reviews:

Over the centuries, the story of Francesca da Rimini has inspired many Italian artists, including verismo composer Riccardo Zandonai. First performed in 1914, Francesca da Rimini is a prime example of the lush musical style of the late Romantic era, superbly conducted here by James Levine. The cast of three acclaimed singing actors – Renata Scotto, Placido Domingo, and Cornell MacNeil - bring the medieval characters to life in this beautiful production, filmed at the Metropolitan Opera in 1984.
