How true. I adore Ms Freni, but OH LORD I detested the film, so theatrically and artistically untruthful, even fraudulent. I don't know what the reasoning was, but I do not doubt that they ( whoever they are) felt that Domingo cut a better physical figure as Pinkerton than did Mr Pavarotti, however I can think of twenty tenors I would have preferred in the role of Pinkerton, and one who failed to burnish, or even admit the beauty of "addio fiorito asil," and failed to crown the great vocal moments in the love duet would not have been one of them.


Regards,

Isaac Alan

The Freni Pavarotti Von Karajan recording was made for the soundtrack
of the Jean-Pierre Ponnelle film of the opera, during which the
singers would lip-synch their performances. However, after a few
screen tests (and for various reasons), the decision was made to shoot
the film with Domingo instead and Pinkerton's music was re-recorded
for the film. Pavarotti wound up with the Ponnelle Rigoletto film
instead and the audio recording of Butterfly on Decca.
