4.0 out of 5 stars A Baroque Masterpiece 18 Jun 2013
By William
Verified Purchase
I was told about this piece by a friend and then had the fortune to see it live recently at the English National opera. This is a wonderful piece of theatre and has great roles for all the leading protagonists, all taken with great aplomb here.Lorraine Hunt is the star of this recording for me and every time she appears she stamps her greatness on the scene and makes it truly memorable.Great work to from the Conductor and Orchestra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Balancing the Scale 23 July 2012
By christianw7 - Published on Amazon.com
I want to help balance the one star review, which I think is extreme for no libretto, given that this is an outstanding recording of music that deserves to be better known. I suggested to the reviewer that she amend to 4 stars with the comment that the lack of libretto was annoying. Don't slam a great recording of great music by great performers because the label is cheap.

4.0 out of 5 stars CD's and librettos 31 Dec 2012
By BareOpera - Published on Amazon.com
I think the reason my eyesight has gotten so bad over the years is from trying to read the miniscule print on CD opera librettos. When I got rid of all my LP's I'm sorry I didn't keep the librettos. If a recording company is not going to furnish a libretto they should at least provide a website where you could print a copy with readable size type...

5.0 out of 5 stars good price 29 Jun 2012
By BENJAMIN YAFET - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is an excellent addition to my MEDEA collection. CHARPENTIER composes in an advanced MONTEVERDI style.
A little comment about the price : It was only $ 14.62 for the full opera (2 CD's).
Not bad at all, given that I also bought (by mistake ) the highlights of the same opera for $ 19.99 (one CD only) elsewhere !

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the Libretto? 28 April 2012
By Carolina Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Why is Time Warner so cheap that it cannot print the libretto with this opera?
There is no mention that it has only a synopsis of the opera which is not mentioned in Amazon's description and this "new" edition look exactly like original edition that was first issued.
