Notes & Reviews:

"For any opera to be fully effective, the singing must be superb, and the consistently transcendent vocal quality and idiomatically appropriate period practice are the other elements that raise these performances to the level of the sublime. Each performance has unique strengths, with Poppea being probably the most effective in all its aspects. The cast is dramatically as well as musically first-rate....Taken individually, these performances are breathtakingly effective, and as a complete record of Monteverdi's surviving operas, the set is a towering achievement that should be of strong interest to any lover of opera or of early music." -All Music Guide
