This is a wonderful opera, with a good plot and wonderful music by Bellini. All singers are very good and Patrizia Ciofi is extraordinary. The reason I do not give five stars is that the staging is not ideal, although it is not offensive.
I woul like to remark that Romeo played by a soprano did not disturb me, and Clara Polito sings and acts her part very well.
If you like bel canto singing, I believe you will enjoy this DVD as I did, so I recommend it emphatically.
Don't miss Ciofi, she compensates for whatever shortcomings this DVD may have (and they are not so serious).

An excellent rare piece of Bellini with first class singing and great musical direction. So why only 4 stars. The dreadfully cheap, stage setting. Why are so many designers allowed to ruin what should be first rate opera ?

As this is the only reasonable recording available on DVD/bluray I rate it ok, even though you can find a much better version on youtube; The Paris opera 2008 version with Anna Netrebko and Joyce di Donato, in the Robert Carsen staging from 1996; the video quality there is not as good as the sound, but once you hear Netrebko and Di Donato, all other performances fade away. Unfortunately the Paris recording is not available on DVD/Bluray.

The Valle d'Itria festival recording has two main drawbacks - an ugly modern staging and an unpleasant echo with all the voices, especially noticeable with the male ones. The orchestra recording on the other hand is fine and does not suffer from the echo. Patricia Ciofi as Giulietta is fine, if not outstanding, but Clara Polito's voice I find too high for Romeo, and a real mezzo would be a much better choice.

This one was a grim one to have pay money for - awful singing, sound and acting. I mean how could Dynamic bear to release it - well perhaps their boss was not home that!
