5.0 out of 5 stars A 'wow' performance both emotionally and technically, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Puccini: Tosca [Blu-ray] [2011] (Blu-ray)
This is an enthralling performance recorded in the open air on a warm summer evening. Fiorenza Cedolins can act, sing, move comfortably in dresses with enormous trains. Her Tosca is a 'high maintenance' passionate woman sung and acted to perfection. Ruggero Raimondi plays Scarpia brilliantly as a maniluptive evil official perfectly - and he combines that with singing and interacting with Tosca very well. Marcelo Alvarez as Mario sings well,

Credit has to be given to all of the production team for the lighting and sound ( including balancing the voices with the orchestra) the camera work used close-ups and angles very effectively. The staging added to the pleasure and having the production out in the open removes the sometimes claustrophobic effect of normal normal productions.

The price charged by Amazon is a real bargain and this is one for your collection
