Opera Australia Chorus & Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, Giovanni Reggioli
Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days.
One of Opera Australia's best-loved productions. Inspired by Fellini's classic film La dolca vita, Verdi's dark melodrama is transposed into the world of modern day mafiosi.
“[Opie] throws more weight onto Emma Matthews to engage the audience’s feelings; fortunately she does this through her much more individual performance and wonderfully assured singing. That is the best reason for seeing this performance although the full-throated approach of Paul O’Neill is also just right for his role.”
