The Triumph of Puccini. Tosca and Madama Butterfly

Two fragments of part 3 of Opera Italia, a BBC program presented by Antonio Pappano. This part is about Giaccomo Puccini, his life and works. Angela speaks about Tosca and Cio Cio San. Two very handsom gentlemen also talk about Tosca (Roberto Alagna) and Madama Butterfly (Jonas Kaufmann). And there are presented some fragments from Tosca-the Movie and the recording session of Madama Butterfly CD (Gheorghiu/Kaufmann, 2008) in Rome to illustrate the words.
.
The entire episode is uploaded on YouTube. Pappano also talks about La Boheme, Gianni Schicci and Turandot. It was a great pleasure to see that the video used to support the part about La Boheme is the performance at ROH where my fellow Romanian Teodor Ilincai made his debut as Rodolfo.
