 Bel Canto Fan December 27, 2011 By Perry S. (New Plymouth, -) See All My Reviews "This was one of the first DVD's I purchased, and I thoroughly enjoy watching repeats. I also have a copy of Vienna's 2007 production with Dessay and Florez (very similar to the London production offered by Arkiv) and they are as different as chalk and cheese, but both have great singing. Mariella Devia may be older than ideal for the DVD close-ups but she acts and sounds younger and hits the high notes clearly. This is a traditional (I think) production, with more colour and costuming that the Vienna one, which is more modern and 'gritty'. I prefer the La Scala disc and can recommend it to traditionalists."
