 Bel Canto seria July 21, 2015 By E. Cosloy (Kittery Point, ME) See All My Reviews "I was somewhat disappointed by this live performance-particularly the soprano's contribution. The tenor was not bad. Muti was great. My mixed review has more to do with the fact that seeing and hearing this Opera at the Met this season with DiDonato and Flores revealed that the newer younger singers are much bettter at bel canto singing than the singers of yore. It's a shame that the Met performance of this Donna del Lago will perhaps never be available in CD." Report Abuse
 This Lady Floats well. April 27, 2014 By Joseph Erdeljac (West Chester, PA) See All My Reviews "We have here an excellent staging of this Rossini rarity. The cast is outstanding with Rockwell Blake, and Martine Dupuy leading the way. June Anderson is in good voice for this one, which can not always be said of her vocal quality. The fidelity is great being a live performance and adds to the excitement of the presentation. There is nothing like the presence of live recording where what you get is what you get. In this case you get a wonderful operatic experience of a Rossini masterpiece too long neglected." Report Abuse
