I had only heard this opera on CD and enjoyed it very much. I had not seen any DVD's until now so was pleased to purchase this one. The main singers were very good infact I would rate the female lead as outstanding. I found the male tenor had an incredible voice but not very powerful at times when singing with other members of the cast. For me the leading baritone was the star of the opera and the orchestra deserves a special mention. Not my favourite but very good.
