Of historic interest

Very much like "FARINELLI" did for the legendary Italian 'castrato,' this film brings to the mainstream another famed 'castrato.' In this case, he is the greatest singer of his type, at the end of Spanish Imperial Rule over Naples & the Two Sicilies.

The movie offers fine period detail of the end of Spanish Rule in Naples, where the plot takes place. Sumptuous decors and costumes, plus star power & from Spanish stars bring lots of glamour. However, the real essence of the main character's personality (which I presumed would be at least a major mission of the film) is not well explored.
