Notes & Reviews:
While best known today for having composed the ending to Puccini's unfinished Turandot, Franco Alfano wrote some dozen operas, including Cyrano de Bergerac (1936) based on Edmond Rostand's drama of the same name. It is a moving tale of romantic misunderstanding and swashbuckling bravado in which the eloquent Cyrano feels unable to express his love for Roxane because of his famously protuberant nose. When Domingo and Radvanovsky sang Cyrano and Roxane at New York's Metropolitan Opera, Andante magazine wrote: "Incredibly, Cyrano is his 121st role. And it suits him splendidly ... Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky was luminous as Roxane, her passionate outbursts showing off her powerful upper register to good effect".Notes & Reviews:
