Description
A 2003 La Scala production of La Bohème with Franco Zeffirelli's famous staging leads off this Puccini-fest. "Gallardo-Domâs and Marcelo Álvarez as the doomed lovers are virtually ideal," wrote Fanfare, "so that the end becomes a veritable four-hanky affair. And both sing extremely well, whether in the high jinks of Act II or the lyric effusions. Hei-Kyung Hong (usually Mimì) is a vivacious Musetta, the music always flowing." Zeffirelli also designed the Butterfly production at Verona's amphitheater, which has hosted international stars of opera each summer since 1913. Marcello Giordani and Fiorenza Cedolins are the cross-cultural couple, B.F. Pinkerton and Cio-Cio San.

"The main visual frisson of the 2002 Salzburg Festival was undoubtedly David Pountney's extravagant (in every sense) staging [of Turandot]…. Engels's three-tiered set fills every inch of the stage at the Grosses Festspielhaus with side-wings carrying it to the extremities…. The sense of a harsh world where human values are of little consequence is admirably and arrestingly conveyed."—Gramophone
