Tony Palmer directs this dramatisation of the tragic relationship between composer Giacomo Puccini and the maid who became his lover, Doria Manfredi - an ill-fated union that went on to inspire the opera 'Turandot'. Robert Stephens and Virginia McKenna star. The drama is juxtaposed with footage from Palmer's 1984 production of 'Turandot' for the Scottish National Opera, starring Linda Evans Gray, Willard White and Alan Opie.

Puccini's area of residence, but the video sings flat due to awful
acting, while juxtaposing itself into rehearsls by the amateurish
Scottish Opera, and the story itself is a bad soap opera. If you
want to see and hear "Turandot," find Franco Corelli's video version,
and if you want a better presentation of Puccini's rustic
marital problems with his wife Elvira, read the book--skip this mess.
