Recorded live at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona, on 1st and 3rd July 2005. Plus Illustrated synopsis & cast gallery. Interview with Dario Fo. Reviews ‘…ironic and sensual, friendly but with a light taste of satire, La Gazzetta by Rossini has been reborn in this production that has the distinctive stamp of Fo, who has been able to handle with strength the Rossinian chaos without neglecting - and here his major virtue - the music.’ El Periodico de Catalunya
