Notes & Reviews:

Daniela Dessi takes the title role in Nuria Espert's new production of Puccini's operatic tour de force - a fiery melodrama of lust, betrayal and revenge.

Daniela Dessì takes the title role in Nuria Espert's new production of Puccini's operatic tour de force -a fiery melodrama of lust betrayal and revenge based on the plot by Victorien Sardou set in eighteenth century Rome.

"The orchestra of the Teatro Real is top-quality and conductor Maurizio Benini outshines himself in a score he clearly loves and knows exactly how to present to optimum advantage. Substantial interviews with the principal performers that benefit from someone who knows enough to ask the right questions, plus a perceptive booklet article by Tom Sutcliffe, add to the attractiveness of a set that in sheer seriousness of intent outclasses all other available performances." - BBC Music Magazine
