Self indulgence by the director,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bellini's I Puritani: Juan Diego Florez / Nino Machaidze / Ildebrando D'Arcangelo / Orchestra e coro del Teatro Comunale di Bologna/ Michele Mariotti [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
We were promised that this included music which is not usually played. We now know why Bellini omitted it. A terrible production with an appalling staging. Very ponderous singing which really only came alight when Florez joined Machaidze in the duet of the later stages of the opera.
