Wonderful MusicJune 9, 2014By Ronald L B. (Omaha, NE)See All My Reviews"I absolutely enjoy this DVD done by the superb singer Cecilia Bartoli. The music is great and of course her voice is excellent. I did enjoy the historical facet of the DVD, what with the entrance of the narrator interspersed around the beautiful voice of Cecilia Bartoli. I am very pleased to get this DVD."Report Abuse
glorious voice and setting. Music sosoJanuary 15, 2013By Jean F T. (Washington, DC)See All My Reviews"Bartoli in glorious voice, Versailles beautifully Photographed, but the music of Agostino Stephani is quite monotonous, if vituosistic ( sub handelian or sub Vivaldian)with the perennial themes of unrequited or abandonned love. Pretty, dazzling but boring in total effect."Report Abuse
