i HAVE 6 DIFFERENT PRODUCTIONS OF THIS OPERA AAND THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST. the CAST IS PERFECT HOWEVER THE WORKMAN IN THE BACKGROUND DETRACT FROM THE PRODUCTION' i
I like using counter tenors rather than women in the castrotato roles. Better than short over weight women with paste on mustaches,

The only problem I have is I do not like any moderinisation of classical opera. Fro those who like they should be attending a rape concert.

5.0 out of 5 stars an exceptional production, 17 Jan. 2012

A beautiful dvd like most operas produced in Russia It is fortunate they never produce the Euro trash coming out of Zurich, Germany and Flanders and very often Paris. I hope that the Met and La Scala continue to produce first rate productions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miscast, 16 Jan. 2012
The music and opera is beautiful. However of the six main characters in the opera only one is a male. Montazumas's wife and daughter are of course women but why are Cortes, his brother, and head warrier all female. No matter how many fake moustaches and armour you but on them they still look like women. I realize that these parts were written for castrati but can't the Met and La Scala try singers like Philippe Jaroussky [ countertenor ] and Max Cencic [ mezzo soprano ] in the castrato parts. They both have beautiful voices.
