Notes & Reviews:
This documentary is an intimate look into the story of Doria Manfredi and of her relationship with Puccini, and the opera that came about as a result. 'Turandot' tells the story of a local girl that went to work for the Puccinis as a maid. After a few years, Puccini's wife, Elvira, became convinced that her husband had been having an affair with the young girl. As a result of the rumors she spread, Doria was shunned by the community, and eventually took her own life.Notes & Reviews:
