"A virtually unbeatable staging of Mozart’s ever-fascinating masterpiece...The first advantage of this
Read more film of the opera is Carlo Tommasi’s ravishing decor...Gardiner’s direction makes all-too-clear the emotional turmoil engineered by Don Alfonso’s cynical plans to test the ladies’ constancy. At all times it is responsive to the music... ...Gardiner’s direct, big-scale yet sensitive conducting is the engine-room of the performance, superbly sustained by his period-instrument band. Peter Mumford’s video direction is faultless; so is the sound picture. All in all, it would be amazing if any successor surpasses this DVD’s achievements on all sides. I recommend it without reservation." - Alan Blyth, GRAMOPHONE
