This review is from: Glinka: Ruslan and Lyudmila (Audio CD)
One critic suggests that the libretto for this opera is flabby and unbalanced, the score is disjointed and the coloratura of one of the character's is out of place. All of this may be true, but given that the concept of opera is pretty bonkers, this matters not at all. The performance at this live performance is superb and the recording quality is excellent. Above all this opera is full of fabulous singing - one brilliant aria following another and with excellent dynamic choruses. Just brilliant! For those who must see their operas, I believe this is available on DVD.
