5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Collection, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: French Opera Arias (Audio CD)
This is a standout collection of beautiful arias delivered with deep passion and elegance. Von Stade has given us a really lovely sample of her rich smooth voice. As to the nuance of her technique, my opinion is that taken as a whole, this album is wonderful, really wonderful. I listen to it very frequently, love it, and do not tire of it.

The novice opera enthusiast would say this is great pop opera - wonderful arias and beautiful music with catchy melodies - and they would be right. This is a good production of a beautiful opera. The filming is slightly unusual with some unexpected close ups of costumes, but that does not detract meanigfully from the overall experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is Madam Butterfly right for a newbie?, 13 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've only just discovered opera, but have seized it with the passion of a convert.

This production is very sensitively constructed. Butterfly is beautifully portrayed and Pinkerton is entirely convincing. This is definitely a good place to start if you're looking for Madam Butterfly. However, as a newbie I'm after rollocking tunes and haunting arias. Although Madam Butterfly does have a haunting aria, overall it just didn't do it for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book but terrible binding, 7 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have ten years SQL experience but none with Reporting Services.

This book is excellent. It is suitable for all levels, really. Unlike many tech books it is good on detail and provides greate code examples. It's saved me hours of experimentation. I also bought Brian Larson's book on the subject. It now gathers dust, but this book is invaluable.

Why only four stars? The binding is dreadful. Pages are falling out in sections. The first eighty pages are now in a file. Proligika need to sort this out (see all the US comments about this). That said, I guess I'll buy another copy or go with a Kindle...
