Description by Qualiton Imports LTD.:

- This performance of Mefistofele was broadcasted LIVE via satellite on the screens of European digital cinemas in high definition within the DDCinema project, getting a huge success among the public. These DVDs feature special contents such as interviews with the cast (Furlanetto, Theodossiou, Filianoti and Del Monaco).
- The performance at the Teatro Massimo features artists of the highest standing: the bass Ferruccio Furlanetto is one of the most celebrated singers of the last thirty years and appears in the greatest theatres and festivals all over the world (Staastoper in Vienna, Metropolitan in New York, Salzburg Festival, the Paris Opéra); alongside him we find a young but already well-known tenor Giuseppe Filianoti, one of the most beautiful voices of his generation, and the Greek soprano Dimitra Theodossiou an artist of international calibre with great vocal and performance talents. The direction of the opera is entrusted to the great experience of Giancarlo Del Monaco son of the famous tenor, who has been active in the theatre for over forty years.
- Boito's Mefistofele is an opera that nowadays is rarely performed. It features the eternal struggle between Good and Evil, in a path made of temptation, lust and redemption that director Giancarlo Del Monaco sets in contemporary society; at the beginning the location and the costumes recall the German expressionism of the 30s that are soon abandoned to become a glittering Vegas-like location with a hint of rocky Horror Picture Show. The prologue and epilogue scenes also contain memorable scene effects featuring a timeless dark tunnel with a blaze of heavenly light at the end of it. (2 DVDs)
