If you can tear yourself away from the turkey, BBC2 are showing an Italian film of Rossini's La cenerentola on 25 December at 3.15pm.
It was shot at various historical locations in Turin this summer for live broadcast in Italy.

When people say you do not exist, I shall direct them to your posts on Intermezzo.
But do try to take things a little more seriously nowadays.....

Gods ain't what they used to be, huh?
"...In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And God said, "Let there be light", and there was light, "wheeeeyyyyyy!"
Also, "Manou said in reply to god..." is a priceless happenstance.

Anyway, why is god celebrating? He must have known it was going to happen all along.

Ah, "Carlo Verdone's Cenerentola", as they advertised it over here -- Gioachino Rossini who? Anyways, as much as the locations are stunning, I didn't like this Cenerentola at all.

When you had this broadcast in Italy was the opera complete? I just noticed that the broadcast here only lasts two hours, part of which will probably consist of some inane wittering from Katie Derham. That means that at least half an hour must have been cut.

IT IS ON NOW AND IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. VISUAL DISASTER. THE BEST BBC CAN SELECT FROM EUROPE?

I didn't like it much either. Very disappointing.

Tearing yourself away from one turkey to partake of another, eh? It would have been better to repeat the old Ponelle film with von Stade and Araiza...

just watched it all on Iplayer and thought it was fun, lovely settings, good singing and some nice animation just the thing to win a wider audience for opera over the xmas period!
