Notes and Editorial Reviews

Alfano is finally coming into his own after decades of being remembered mainly as the composer who completed Turandot after Puccini's death. Long stereotyped as an inferior hack, Alfano is seen today as an exceptional composer in his own right. Cyrano de Bergerac, based on the famous French play which has been made into three classic movies, is one of his most exquisitely crafted works and a real "sleeper" on the opera circuit.
