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.
“Paul O'Neill sings ably though his dramatic presentation is dull. Emma Matthews's Gilda is far more consistent; she sings with keen technical aplomb and manages the tricky task of playing a character whose innocence proves a terrible vulnerability...Giovanni Reggioli is the decent conductor.”
