Notes & Reviews:
EuroArts DVD presents a gathering of some of the most important and popular opera singers of our time in a vast open-air event from the Theatre Square in Dresden with over 15,000 in attendance. This open air concert is an unforgettable experience for any fan of classical music - as the enthusiastic reactions of the audiences in these excerpts clearly demonstrate.
American Record Guide - Michael Mark
The final scene from Carmen as done by Baltsa and Shicoff is a real sizzler... .their singing has lots of oomph. Tomowa-Sintow... is a pleasure to hear in Adriana and Forza chestnuts. Kurt Rydl has the most unusual selection: Fiddler on the Roof's 'If I Were a Rich Man' sung in German - strangely entertaining. There's no bad singing.
