 Poor live recording August 13, 2012 By Carl P Nordmark (Northfield, NH) See All My Reviews "It is so sad to waste incredible talent with a poor live recording. The microphone pickups were obviously placed in the wrong position, or the microphones themselves were not functioning as they should have. In many of the arias and duets the voices sound muffled. I would not recommend this recording for purchase. I plan to buy the other one offered for a much higher price. Hopefully the recording will be better." Report Abuse
