Product Description

From the opening notes of the overture to the final curtain, Emilio Sagis classic, triumphant production fully brings to life all the elegant wit and theatricality of Mozarts comic masterpiece. Leading baritone Ludovic Tézier shines as the lustful Count Almaviva who attempts to obtain the favours of Figaros bride-to-be, Susanna (Isabel Rey), while Luca Pisaroni gives a feisty performance as Figaro. Conductor Jesús López Cobos masterfully captures the enchanting score. A witty yet profound tale of love, betrayal, and forgiveness.

Review

"An incontestable success full of Sevillian atmosphere. (Tézier) is in exceptional vocal shape and the role suits him perfectly."

--Music Web International

'Very fine singing from Ludovic Tézier, Marina Comparato, Raúl Giménez and Soledad Cardosa...This complete version does contains all the arias for the minor characters...and it restores the 11 bars usually omitted form the duet, 'Aprite, presto aprite'.' **** --BBC Music Magazine, August 2012, Anthony Pryer

'This is Mediterranean Mozart, bigger in sound, more emotionally extravagant in manner and somewhat less refined on nearly every level...In the best moments, all of these elements conspire in ways that allow you to enter the looking glass...The loneliness of the Countess so powerfully projected by Barbara Frittoli, becomes so contagious that you feel how torn she must be when resisting Cherubino'. --Gramophone, July 2012, David Patrick Stearns

This performance from 2009 is a new production of the opera by Emilio Sagi and is of the full non-cut version of the opera. This is important as it makes sure that the original balance of the composition as conceived by Mozart is retained with all characters fully drawn by the appropriate recitatives and arias. This desire for completeness was very important to Sagi and conductor Lopez Cobos as they individually explain in the accompanying bonus interview.

This approach extends to the staging which is not only generous in its sumptuousness but also manages to create a great sense of 3D. This is done through imaginative and frequent use of intermediate gauze curtaining beyond which relevant action continues supplementing that of the foreground. The fine costuming continues these themes of historically accurate and generous detailing.

In summary therefore it would be fair to state that this is a remarkably satisfying feast for the eyes and the senses in terms of staging.

Great attention has been brought to bear on the roles of all the characters seen on the stage at any one time and also wherever positioned both in terms of drama and stage depth. These roles never cease to act their parts fully in character even when not the prime focus of attention, thus giving a great boost to the continuing sense of reality. This was a prime aim of the director and in that he totally succeeds. He also has firmly established the various connections with Seville by underlining Mozart's inclusion of the Fandango which would have been known to both the Count and the Countess as well as Figaro. (See Rossini's Barber of Seville).

Musically this is a first rate production with characterful singing of accuracy delivered by everyone without exception.

I am no expert on this opera with its somewhat typical-for-the-period involved tale of love and betrayal, but this is a very fine disc. Produced by the same mob that did the excellent Barber of Seville, it is traditional with just a touch of modern clean lines here and there. The cast are outstanding and just about everyone looks the part. The short interview doco is very interesting and overall this is an outstanding contribution to opera on BD. No need to hesitate

Format: DVD
The opening sequence whilst the overture is playing looks through a window centre stage at the comings and goings of the Counts household. I felt immediately that something special was afoot.
The sets are appropriate, not extravagant but quite impressive, from the big windows in The Countess bedroom with sunlight pouring in, to the dark garden with mistaken identities in the gloom, all make for interesting viewing.
The costumes all look in period, brightly coloured but not garish for the servants and mainly black and white for the four main protagonists.
The acting is excellent, lots of interaction and byplay keep ones attention, Antonio with his plantpots for instance.
The orchestra and continuo are crisp and well balanced to the singers.
Now to the singers, Luca Pisaroni and Isabel Rey are a very animated pair of lovers, Pisaroni has a rich baritone whilst Rey is a ringingly clear soprano.
Marcellina and Bartolo are not presented as buffoons either in dress or characterisation, but have just the right level of eccentricity. Fischer has a great voice and in her act 4 aria gets deserved appreciation. Chausson is also a good character singer. The pair are far more credible than in other performances that I have seen.
The same can also be said of Basilio, sung by Gimenez another spot on performance.
Tezier makes a wickedly scheming Count, and portrays his changes of mood with expertise both in action and voice, a good looking chap too.
Comparato is a nicely laddish Cherubino, does up quite nicely as a girl too in the presentation scene. Another good voice.
Cardoso in the small but pleasant role of Barbarina has another first class voice, very sweet on the ear.
