Notes & Reviews:
This marks Rolando Villazón's directorial debut in a dual-role: stage director and star singer (main role Nemorino) at the same time, and it is a clear WINNER.
Inspired by the cartoon character Lucky Luke and the Spaghetti Western-tradition, the tenor's staging for the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus is not only a film studio in the thirties but also a Western at the same time.
Extraordinary visual production, and one of the most memorable European operatic events of 2012Apart from the opera the DVD includes a very engaging and interesting "Behind the scenes 'Rolando Villazón's 'Lelisir damore' in the wild West', filmed by Friedemann Hottenbacher. Lead by the dynamic young conductor Pablo Heras-Casado, who "... conducts very singer friendly" by Online Musik MagazinNotes & Reviews:
