From what I’ve read from posts of those who have seen the performance:

  • Lee Pace sang in Italian
  • Played the piano
  • Looked hot in form-fitting suit and tight trousers
  • Showed the passion, vulnerability and insecurities of Bellini extremely well
  • Spoke paragraphs of lines with lots of gestures and movements to show the anxiety and sensitivity of the character (which must be physically and emotionally exhausting)
  • His character Bellini is adored by Florimo (Will Rogers), who takes care of him, feeds him medicine, catches him when he faints, and has an intimate moment leaning against him and listening to him talk about his works

Depressed right now coz I never had a chance to watch this…
