5.0 out of 5 stars Best (only!) available!!, 1 Feb 2008
This review is from: Donizetti: La Fille du régiment (Audio CD)
A wonderful period piece of almost unrivalled singing from two of the best at the peak of their performance, ably supported by the lesser characters and genuine humour from the classic speaking cameo of the Duchesse de Krakenthorp. The recording is also something of a tribute to an all but vanished style of bel canto performance; those lucky enough to see Dessay and Florez at Covent Garden last year (televised this Christmas) will realise how things have changed. However, until such stunning performers choose to perform on disc, "La Stupenda" and "Big Lucy" remain the only option. In any event, as a monument to it's style and artists it is indispensable.

The DVD version from the Met of the same production as the Covent Garden performance of 2007 is already available with Dessay, Florez, and Corbelli. It is a great production both musically and dramatically. I saw it in Covent Garden and also the Met film version. I would most thoroughly recommend it.
