5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, 19 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cavalli: La Didone (Theatre De Caen 2011) (Anna Bonitatibus/ Kresimir Spicer/ Les Arts Florissants/ Clement Hervieu-Leger/ William Christie) (Opus Arte: OA1080D) [DVD] [NTSC] [2012] (DVD)
This production of Cavalli's Dido is delightful. The spirit of Monteverdi seeps through. The singing is excellent and the story is well told through an innovative production. William Christie and Les Arts Florissants are in top form. This production of a very rarely heard opera is preferable to the other dvd recording by Fabio Biondi on Dynamic. Not as exciting as Berlioz' take on the same story. The only down side is the use of the alternative ending:- happy rather than Dido killing herself. But then you can sleep happily afterwards.
