Juan Diego Flórez, the king of bel canto tenors, gives a truly charming performance as the lovelorn Ernesto—a role he has triumphed in at The Metropolitan Opera and Royal Opera, Covent Garden.
• Featuring Ruggero Raimondi and Isabel Rey performing title roles in this traditional stage production from the Zurich Opera House.
• With an image up to six times sharper than conventional DVD and superior high-definition sound, Blu-ray lets you watch opera from the front row and experience every detail with exceptional clarity.

“This is bel canto singing with added modern
Read more muscle.” -- The New York Times on Juan Diego Flórez
