Notes & Reviews:

With more than one million copies sold, the soundtrack of Gérard Corbiau's 1994 Academy Award nominated film Farinelli contributed to the international success of Les Talens Lyriques. For the film, in order to reinvent the voice of Carlo Broschi, known as Farinelli, a computer was used to mix the timbres of countertenor Derek Lee Ragin and coloratura soprano Ewa Mallas-Godlewska. For this stage production, music director Christophe Rousset chose mezzo Ann Hallenberg to portray the first rock star in the history of music. This program, recorded in concert in Bergen, mixes the emblematic arias of the film with other works from Farinelli's repertoire, and the libretto gives audiences a peek into the exciting life of the extremely famous castrato.
