Daniela Dessi takes the title role in Nuria Espert's new production of Puccini's fiery Roman melodrama of lust, betrayal and revenge. Filmed in High Definition during the 2003-4 Teatro Real season, and mixed in sumptuous 5.1 Surround Sound, this intense and atmospheric production rates among the finest stage performances ever captured for DVD of Puccini's operatic tour de force.
