Daniele Rustioni Leads a Memorable Production Directed by The Brilliant Laurent Pelly

The choir of Teatro Real showed its professionalism and good singing in the very short interventions that this opera offers for them and proved their acting and dancing abilities throughout the many challenges that Pelly’s staging demanded of them.
The young Italian conductor Daniele Rustioni, who debuted at Teatro Real, gave a passionate reading of the score, not taking risks in tempi and managing to coordinate the voices with the orchestra perfectly. He ended the performance with a triumphant and lively performance of the fugue “Tutto en el mondo è burla.”
