Starring Puccini, David, Cura, Nizza, Gertseva
In Turin, no one succeeds more than José Cura with his erotic brute force in the title role of the stupid orphan boy. In the Puccini celebration year 2008 this performance stands out as a lonely jewel.
— Die Welt
With the phenomenal José Cura in the title role the Teatro Regio could get one of the best singers in the world for this role. His deep-voiced tenor is a perfect fit for this conflicted figure, self-restrained even in the arias.
