  • This marks Rolando Villazón’s directorial debut in a dual-role: Stage director and star singer at the same time for Donizetti’s "L'elisir d'amore”.

    Inspired by the cartoon character Lucky Luke and the Spaghetti Western-tradition, the tenor’s staging for the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus is not only a film studio in the thirties but also a Western at the same time. Apart from the opera, the DVD includes a very engaging and interesting “Behind the scenes ‘Rolando Villazón's 'L´elisir d´amore' in the wild West’, filmed by Friedemann Hottenbacher.
