4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable if not exactly great music in spirited performances 2 April 2011
By G.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Francois Boieldieu's name survives on the fringes of the repertoire together with that of his near-contemporary Auber. But his most frequently recorded work is probably his harp concerto, and that one can hardly be called particularly representative. Boieldieu was first and foremostly a composer of operas, of which La dame blanche may be his main contribution (there exists at least one other recording that I have not heard). It was composed in 1825, and was apparently his last major work. It is a lively and spirited affair, generally fast-paced (Boieldieu seems to have been aware that dialogue is rather boring and attempts to get it over with as quickly as possible to get to the next musical number - the dialogue is at least delivered with machine-gun rapidity here) and colorful. Stylistically Auber may be a point of reference, but - although Boieldieu's music is thoroughly French in character - so is Rossini; there is also some use of orchestral color that sounds distinctly forward-looking. The themes are catchy if not particularly memorable and the vocal writing skillful and inventive. There is little structural coherence, however, and the opera comes across more as a sequence of numbers than a through-composed unity.

It receives a very fine performance, at least. Rockwell Blake is admirably agile and provides a well-sung, distinct characterization of Georges Brown. Jean-Paul Fourchécourt is a splendid, clear light tenor whereas Laurent Naouri's bass is strong and warm and full. On the other hand Mireille Delunsch and Annick Massis deal with the soprano parts in the most admirable manner and Sylvie Brunet provides a fine contralto portrayal of Marguerite. The chorus is spirited and vigorous and the Ensemble Orchestral de Paris provides vibrant, vivid playing under Marc Minkowski's fast-paced, energetic direction. La dame blanche isn't a masterpiece, perhaps, but it is surely an enjoyable experience in performances as fine as these. Recommended to anyone with an interest in French opera comique or the music of, say, Auber or Adam. It won't change your life, but it will provide some light entertainment, at least.

5.0 out of 5 stars i love early 19th century french opera 23 Oct 2012
By jose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this collection of emi french opera from the belcanto years is just flawless, this set is funny beautiful, more oriented for a tenor leggero voice & as always in german or french opera i cut the dialogs to listen only to the music & singing & all the pieces are fabulous. is a marvel of belcanto. only 2 hours long. worth to listen & have. i bought it 1 week ago & i listened to it twice already. i bought it along with 4 other opera sets so i had a lot to listen, but i was able to listen to this one this many times

5.0 out of 5 stars La Dame Blanche 18 Feb 2013
By Jutta Howe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Why is the full libretto, as indicated in the booklet, not available from
emiclassics.com? But this has nothing to do with the recording. It is wonderful -
with an excellent cast of mostly French speakers. Highly recommended!!
5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure 26 Mar 2014
By J. Luis Juarez Echenique - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
We must be thankful that EMI France recorded this little gem of an opera when the ideal singers were available to do it justice. This is the best of the all too few complete opera recordings that the great Rockwell Blake left us. His performance is quite simply breathtaking, the vocal pyrotechnics this man can do are unbelievable, and they are not merely showy but very musical and elegant, something that won't be duplicated in decades, for him alone this recording is a must have, but Annick Massis and the rest of the cast are all admirable, and it would be hard to find a more stylish and learned conductor than Marc Minkowski for Boieldieu. If this opera is not heard more often it's because of the great vocal demands, but it's a lovely opera, and definitely very good music.
