Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Dessay and Florez more or less epitomize what the opera was meant to be: a cute story of two cute people who sing florid, cute music that sits very high in their light, expressive voices. The fact that Sutherland and Pavarotti were somehow not ideally suited vocally to their roles is what made their performances so thrilling; the fact their new equivalents are vocally ideal is what makes their performances so gloriously idiomatic and charming. And indeed, this DVD, recorded at Covent Garden (the production was later seen in Vienna and just recently in New York), is just about perfect." -Classics Today (10/10)
