5.0 out of 5 stars Oldy but goody, 15 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Verdi: I Vespri Siciliani [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
The stagings are stylized, but very effective. Similarly the costumes which are probably not accurate get by quite well and give an easy identifier of who is on each side.
I love Cheryl Studer, and she is a fine Elena, she has a clear and mellow soprano which sits easily on my ear. Zancanaro is very good in this role, he has rather a hard voice, it is well suited here to his character. Chris Merritt is another of my favourites, his clear tenor is a delight. I am not really familiar with Furlanetto, but his baritone is easily voiced and makes for easy listening.
The minor characters are equally good and well cast. The chorus do a fine job and are crisp and clear.
The act 2 dancers are also a treat, that is until the girls are abducted.
The booklet has a full libretto as well as a comprehensive synopsis. The sections however are not numbered and cannot be related to the act headliners, a minor point really.
