Luana De Vol, Barbara Frittoli, Franco Farina & Stefano Palatchi Orquestra Simfònica i Cor del Gran Teatre del Liceu, Giuliano Carella

Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona 2004 Stage Director: Núria Espert

“…this is a largely traditional representation of a dark-fairy-tale Peking, though recreated in Ezio Frigerio's sets and Franca Squarciapino's costumes on an unusually magnificent scale. Luana DeVol, taking the title role with genuine vocal and dramatic command, was new to me: the inspiring story of her late rise to a major solo career is included in a worthwhile documentary. Franco Farina acts and sings a good, solid Calaf... Barbara Frittoli provides a memorable Liù, and Stefano Palatchi's Timur is imposing.” BBC Music Magazine, Proms 2007 *****
