La Stupenda for the 21st Century,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Donizetti: Maria Stuarda (The Metropolitan Opera HD Live) [DVD]   (DVD)
I had the great pleasure of seeing DiDonato sing this live at Covent Garden twice this summer and she was absolutely stunning. Nothing can beat her live performance of the role but this DVD is an essential addition to my collection. Also, McVicar's staging is much more sumptuous and fitting than Leiser & Caurier's was at Covent Garden this year. If you like Bel Canto opera, you should definitely get this!!! If the final act doesn't leave you gasping, you're not human.
