Product Description

Imported from USA

The Nobel Prize-winning writer Dario Fo applies his inventive genius to Rossini's comic opera in its premiere DVD
release. Recorded in 2005 under the musical direction of Maurizio Barbacini, Fo's production brings fresh vitality and
colour to the story of Lisetta, and of her father's attempts to find a husband for her through an advertisement in the
newspaper La Gazzetta. Filmed using high definition cameras with multitrack sound.

Press Reviews
"...a tour de force of acrobatic silliness and barbed social satire. Of the cast, which included the inimitable Bruno
Praticò and the lovely Cinzia Forte...it can only be said that it is difficult to imagine the piece sung or acted
better." (The Financial Times)
"Lively and hilarious...Pulsating pace, Charleston looks and silent movie aesthetics in a series of gags...Fo takes the
opportunity to satirise the world of advertising and the hypocrisy of the powerful." (El Pais)

"La Gazzetta by Rossini has been reborn in this production that has the distinctive stamp of Fo, who has been able to
handle with strength the Rossinian chaos without neglecting - and here his major virtue - the music." (El Periodico de
Catalunya)

"La Gazzetta was a visionary work, and it is still revolutionary in the actual 'age of disinformation'." (Dario Fo)
