LA GIOCONDA:Ponchielli
Original Air Date: 01/05/1980
Patanè; Scotto, Mauro, Quilico, Nave, Giaiotti
SID.18410533
This role was simply too much for Scotto, and especially so by 1980. It’s not a question of hitting the notes, but being the completely wrong voice for the part. That she knows the style is without question; it is not enough. The saving grace is a number of fine performers in other big meaty roles under Patane’s solid guidance. Giaiotti is the only person really of the requisite voice size and quality for his role.
