A Real Joy

'Le Ventre de Paris',
praised by GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

I went to Venice for this season's Carnival. However, I did not go to La Fenice where the program featured two blockbusters: L'Elisir d'Amore in the same production that was premiered five years ago (A Real Surprise, 3 November 2010) and the well-known and often staged Don Pasquale. In short, two of Donizetti's light operas most frequently in the repertory.

Instead, I thought it more interesting to go and see (as well as listen to) a semi-staged new production of a short opera based on a number of French operettas as well as popular songs of the nineteenth century: Le Ventre de Paris may deserve attention...
