Marta Domingo's famous production of this increasingly popular 'operetta'; the only version of this particular ending to the piece available on DVD

A valuable addition to Decca's catalogue of Puccini DVDs. The piece is barely represented on DVD and Marta's Domingo's famous production is one of several recently which have started to make this work more a part of the standard operatic repertoire.

The operetta is famous for the beautiful aria 'Doretta's Dream', used in the Merchant Ivory film of a Room with a View. However, the piece is in fact full of Puccini's luscious melodies, albeit written in a lighter manner than usual.

Marta Domingo's production was celebrated yet controversial for adapting the ending to reflect the more tragic outcome of the story; this is one of three endings Puccini wrote for the opera and Decca's DVD will be the only available release of this version.

Excellent cast led by the beautiful Spanish soprano Ainhoa Arteta. American Marcus Haddock plays her suitor and the soprano Inva Mula is also notable in the role of Lisette.
