There are no two like these two: Plácido Domingo and Woody Allen. In a sensational LA Opera production, they whisk their audience away into a world of love and cunning. Meet Gianni Schicchi – supposed to make a rich family even richer, he chooses to be fairy godfather to two young lovers instead. Woody Allen’s staging of Puccini’s comic masterpiece stars Plácido Domingo – and in a rave review, the LA Times stated that he ‘sounded as if he could go on forever. He brought the unmistakable Domingo ping to the scheming Gianni Schicchi’.
A new 25‘ documentary shows how this Gianni Schicchi came to be - and what happens behind the stage of the LA Opera.
