Dark, silky menace triumphs over worthy goodness. Buy this!,

This review is from: Tosca - Puccini  [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
This beautiful film was shot in the real settings of the story, and it is enchanting. Kaibavanska is in great voice, but Sherill Milne steals the day. His Machiavelli of a Scarpia exudes evil charisma and has the single-minded predatory approach of a hungry wolf. The best interpretation I have seen... his dark, silky menace makes Domingo's worthy Cavaradossi seem an unexiting alternative, despite a fine performance. Buy it and settle back to enjoy!
