• First Release on DVD
• “One of [the Met’s] most ingenious stagings in recent years...made to order for a great Rossini ensemble” —The New York Times
• Star soprano Kathleen Battle “brings a full, lyric richness to the music, right up to the very top of her interpolations, and a bell-clear agility in the coloratura, as well.” —The New York Times
