 Unique talent April 22, 2014 By Marina  Y. (Richmond Hill, NY) See All My Reviews "I have seen this opera staged by Peter Sellers on YOUTUBE first and then bought the DVD. I feel I must have it. Sellers has a unique talent to see operas through a contemporary eye. These days many directors try to do so but only a few ones win. I also love Don Giovanni staged by Sellers many years ago. I have seen a few Zaides and many Don Giovannies. Not all are good. Those staged by Peter Sellers are truly good in a sense that he delivers an opera's story that is fresh and unique." Report Abuse
