Sacrificium: La scuola dei Castrati ~ Nicola Porpora
5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 15 Oct 2012
Great music evoking the castrati era of Farinelli. Bartoli may be well on the way to barking mad but she embraces this repertoire and puts it across with passion. Is it a coincidence that she resembles Michael jackson on the cover?!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An English masterpiece, 15 July 2011
I was fortunate enough to see this production on the smaller Linbury stage at Covent Garden. The piece is marvelous. Arne is a grossly undervalued national treasure and this opera deserves to be part of the repertoire of English companies and festivals. Some sublime music with beautiful Bel Canto set pieces for all voices. Buy and enjoy!
