4.0 out of 5 stars Good chance to see some of opera's best! 24 July 2016
By Maya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am NOT an opera fan! I do like Kiri Te Kanawa and Placido Domingo. One of the choices of an opera with the
two of them in it is not one of their best. Manon Lescaut is not one of the best loved Puccini operas and with
Kiri Te Kanawa recovering from the flu it is not her best. There is inaccuracy on the part of Puccini in the final
scenes where Manon and her lover are wandering in search of water in a desert outside New Orleans! There
is more water in that area than in a lot of other areas in the US and Puccini did not live in the 1500's or 1600's.
A better choice for an opera with the two of them in it at the Royal Opera House would have been Othello or
even Simon Boccanegra. They appeared in many operas there and surely one better than Manon could have
been found. The choice of Der Rosenkavalier was a good one. It is a light, comedy opera that has no one
dying or any wild operatic noises. It is beautiful music made by a great orchestra and some great singers some
of whom are still performing today whether in opera or recitals. Domingo is also very good in the Tales of
Hoffman. It is good, if you are a fan of opera to see some of opera's best performers on this DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Special 6 Dec. 2010
By Vince D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
We have very special performers today in the world of opera, worthy of accolades, and providing great singing and theater. This DVD from the archives of the Royal Opera, Covent Garden gives the listener a look back at the great artists of the past, not for comparison, just for the joy of stepping back in time and listening to those of that era. A highly enjoyable addition to any library.
