This review is from: Le Compte Ory [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Despite (or perhaps because of) being an old Glyndebourne live performance, it is still splendid fun. It might have earned 5 Stars had it not been for just the one badly blemished note from the tenor early in Act 1, but the spontaneity of a live performance makes it a perfectly acceptable trade off. (Can't lay my hands on my copy but thought it was NOT a Region 1 DVD.) PS. The music was recycled, of course, in Il Viaggio a Reims, Rossini never being one to waste a good tune.
