Notes and Editorial Reviews

Under the artistic direction of Ira Siff (aka Vera Galupe-Borszkh), La Gran Scena has become legendary for its opera parodies. Their debut DVD release includes their unparalleled take on Act II of Tosca. “La Gran Scena puts on a very, very funny show. If the company’s dramatic satire is right on target, its musical barbs are also aimed with deadly accuracy. Best of all, there is nothing mean-spirited about La Gran Scena’s wicked wit, which is always motivated by a love of opera and a joy in singing. Bravi!” —Peter G. Davis, New York. 112 program minutes and 48 minutes of bonus material. Color.
