Giovanni's, based on the popular Italian musical, "Fantasia: Fantasia on a Theme by Giuseppe Verdi," is a spectacular production. I thought I would be getting a cliche-ridden movie, but I was pleasantly surprised by a movie that shows a variety of actors that are new to me. I have to say that it was great seeing Edith Piaf, who I had not seen before, as an actress. She was so good at playing her role that she actually reminded me of a young Meryl Streep. I felt like I was a part of the production, and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was a huge improvement over other productions, including those I have seen in the theater. I also liked how it was filmed. The sound of the film was mixed quite well, and you could not tell that the actors were singing while they were speaking. The sets were also beautiful, and the costumes were very realistic. The sets looked like they were made for the stage, which made the movie come alive. This is not a typical musical, and there were no singers singing in the movie, just the actors. The sound was not quite as good as I had been told, but it was still good. I thought the actors did an excellent job, especially Gino, who played the leading role. He was absolutely amazing. He brought the character to life and also made you feel as if you were there with him. I was so happy that he chose the role of a musician. I feel that it is very hard to act, but Gino was very convincing. The movie was great. The music was wonderful, and I felt as if I was part of the production. I was glad that I saw it in theaters instead of renting it. The actors were great and the music was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone.

I recently acquired a copy of Il Trovatore from a thrift store. I had heard of it for many years, as it was frequently performed and sung by modern Italian opera singers. I decided to buy it because I had heard the songs for many years. My original interest was in the production. The production was very good, with many operatic touches (I especially like the staging and setting of the opera house). The performances were of a higher standard than I expected, especially given that most operas are only sung by the Sanzio-sanctimonious actors. The costumes and costuming were superb. There were several scenes, of the Sanzio brothers dancing in the costumes that were designed for them. The costumes were quite modern, not too much medieval, which was a real contrast. I also like the costumes for the audience, although the costuming for them was a little dated. But the costumes were not the only things that were modern in the costumes, for instance the use of different colors for the different costume items. And the staging was great, although not always that realistic. The direction was excellent. I also liked the music. The songs were good, although I did not enjoy the hymns. I have only one complaint. I felt that the chorus was not very well-chosen for this opera, so that a more traditional and well-chosen choir was not needed. And that is one thing I have to criticize. I would have liked the singers to sing a few more of the songs, but they were the only thing that I felt the chorus lacked. I do not know if this had anything to do with the production. Overall, I loved the production, but the choir's singing was an occasional problem. I was able to overlook this because of the other singers, particularly those that were in the chorus. Overall, I am very glad that I purchased Il Trovatore, but the choir was not perfect. I think it is a wonderful opera, and I would love to see it performed by a bigger chorus.

As a fan of Italian opera and pop culture, I have to admit that I'm probably the biggest fan of this one, and I still love it. The best thing about this opera, besides its unique presentation and lyrics, is the music and the voice. This is one of the best operas I've heard, thanks to the singers. At first, I don't believe the singing was going to be as good as the singing in Tchaikovsky's "Rhapsody in Blue", but it really surpassed all expectations. It's not just an opera, but a whole collection of songs. While it might not be the best song, it's one of the most memorable and favorite. It's sung by Ennio Morricone, one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, who only wrote three operas before he died, the others being Tchaikovsky's "Rhapsody in Blue", "Rhapsody in Blue (Precious Skin)" and "Rhapsody in Blue (Orpheus and Eurydice)." I also liked the way it was sung and sung by Ennio Morricone. He is a great singer, and this is one of his best pieces, among the best of his works. The singing was really natural, and it's easy to understand, with the songs being sung in a really great way. I also liked the lyrics, they were great, and the lyrics were beautiful, and I liked them. I think the lyrics were what made this opera special. The opera is divided into three parts, and each part is beautifully illustrated, with an orchestra, and was very lyrical. It's not just about the opera, but it's about the opera, and the music. The only bad thing about this opera is the way it was presented. It's not a very long opera, and it's not very complicated, like many opera productions are. It's a slow opera, that is to be enjoyed on the big screen, but it's not a drama. The opera itself is just a beautiful, breathtaking love story. A very good opera. (9/10)
