Inspired by the cartoon character Lucky Luke and the Spaghetti Western-tradition, Rolando’s staging for the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus is not only a film studio in the thirties but also a Western at the same time. In addition to the opera, the DVD & Blu-ray include a special “Behind the scenes ‘Rolando Villazón’s ‘L´elisir d´amore’ in the wild West’ feature, filmed by Friedemann Hottenbacher. The production marks Rolando’s debut as both stage director and singer.
