The great opera director, Franco Zeffirelli, has died at 96.
He created productions in many opera houses, many of which are still running. The Metropolitan Opera still uses: Turandot Turandot Turandot, La Boheme La Boheme
. Barber's Antony and Cleopatra
doesn't repeat and Tosca
has been replaced.
At the Arena di Verona an entire season was designed by Zeffirelli. I saw only Madama Butterfly
He filmed movies of operas as well, mostly with Placido Domingo.
is a proper remembrance.
