Puccini: Turandot on DVD
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The DVD version of Turandot is based on an outstanding MET production from 1988 Reviews "A straightforward, spectacular and star-cast staging by Franco Zeffirelli that comes over extremely well. At the heart of it is James Levine's massive, stormy reading. The Met orchestra are in tremendous form; so is the chorus. Eva Marton sings with stinging power and passion; Plácido Domingo is a superb Calaf, Leona Mitchell is a silvery-voiced Liu. - It is superbly directed and recorded, especially on laserdisc. A clear first choice." (The Classical Video Guide, 1997, reviewing the LD release) "Among the singers, Domingo reigns supreme. He is in ringing voice and tireless; and "fearsome" is not too strong a word for both his singing and for his stage persona. In his own way, he is as ruthless as the icy princess . . . The DVD looks and sounds good." Fanfare (Tenafly, NJ) / 01 January 2004
