D’Ancora’s real name was Rodolfo Gucci.
Gigli was a well-known and enormously popular operatic tenor. His works are still available.
Sinaz also appeared with Rossano in La grande aurora, Noi Vivi/Addio Kira and Silenzio, si gira!
Rossano plays the role of Michele Donato, a musician, composer and director. “Ritorno” refers to the operatic work he is composing, “The Return of Ulysses” … specifically created as the debut vehicle for his love, a beautiful singer played by Marte/Martha Herell. Disillusioned with what he perceives as her abandonment of his work on her road to success, he nearly destroys it by re-working it as a contemporary showtune piece, only to catch himself at the last minute. She performs the work at La Strada to critical acclaim, along with tenor Beniamino Gigli.
Rossano’s intensity as a performer has always lended itself well to roles as musicians – specifically pianists – and conductors, and this is one of his earliest performances as an orchestral conductor, a role he took up again in Interlude and then again, briefly, in The Battle of the Villa Fiorita.
