Per request: Turandot, Athens 1996



Dear Mahler (not the dead one you fools) requested an old Turandot from Athens. Soooo, Parsifal sneaked into his 200 m2 cd-room (i'm kidding, its no more than 10 m2) and after 15 minutes of search found it. An open-air Turandot from the Odeon Of Herodes Atticus back in 1996 with a very good cast! Francesca Patane had caused a great sensation as Turandot back in the 90's due to her wonderful dramatic soprano but also due to her looks. Next to her, the veteran Nicola Martinucci singing the role that made him famous worldwide.
