Puccini: Turandot / Donato Renzetti, Giuliano Montaldo, Daniela Dessi, Massimo La Guardia, Mario Malagnini. Teatro Carlo Felice [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Turandot is one of the most powerful and original of Puccini's operas, and a favourite with audiences, not least because of the sumptuous sets and costumes it calls for. From a musical point of view, Turandot is the most modern and innovative of Puccini's scores, while also being the one that best sums up his characteristic traits. Donato Renzetti leads the Orchestra and chorus of Teatro Carlo Felice. Daniela Dessì stars as Turandot.

Filmed in HD at a live 2012 performance in the Teatro Carlo Felice, one of the best known and the last of Puccini's operas "Turandot" is directed and filmed by Giuliano Montaldo in a cast led by Daniela Dessė in the titular role and Mario Malagnini as the Calaf . Based on a 12th century Persian tale, the story of Turandot has long entranced audiences worldwide with its lyrical pageantry and pentatonic laden score containing an astonishing amount of now beloved arias such as "Nessun Dorma" and "In Questa Reggia". With the Franco Alfano score to the final act and with the Orchestra and Choir of the Teatro Carlo Felice conducted by Donato Renzetti, this production features the acclaimed stage design of Giuliano Montaldo's. With generous subtitle availability in Italian, English, German, Spanish, French, Japanese and Korean.
