The 48 minute bonus DVD showing the recording of the CD under the baton of Maestro Domingo is a real treat. It enhances the enjoyment of listening to the beautiful CD where the lyric tenor showcases Zarzuela, Spain's great contribution to lyric theatre 'a blend of tears and laughter'. You'll see it being acted and appreciate the sheer musicality and verve. We also get glimpses into Rolando's life in Mexico as he talks about his first meeting with his hero, Domingo. Domingo tells us just how special Villazon is. The booklet gives the background and words of the songs. A must have if you have previously enjoyed these pieces in concerts by The Three Tenors and Villazon himself.

Two months ago I knew nothing about Rolando Villazón. Then I bought 111 Years Of Deutsche Grammaphon: 11 Great Videos [DVD] [2009] and suddenly discovered the couple Villazón/Netrebko in a glorious Traviata.

After that I had to know more about this fantastic tenor and I found this little gem as a response.

Most of the arias are well-known. Other few are fantastic but not included in so many CDs (unfortunately). In every respect Villazón sings them with spirit. His voice gives you the exact feeling of the song. It's noted he loves this music. You can feel the passion, the fun, the sadness and the tenderness within these pieces. I like the timbre of his voice and the tone is soft when needed yet powerful all over the song. I can say I'm in love with these renditions.

The great discovery of this CD was the master Domingo conducting this music. I've heard him conducting opera but never Zarzuela. It was a great experience. He knows this music since he has also sang most of them (and wonderfully btw).

And finally, I have to say that, for once, it is fantastic to see our Zarzuela well treated on a CD. The booklet is complete enough and contains the lyrics in ES, EN, FR and IT, wich is barely found in Zarzuela releases. And the DVD contains great interviews both with Villazón and Domingo as well as excerpts of the rehearsals.

A total recommendation for anyone who loves Zarzuela. A great beginning for those who still don't know this music.

Another excellent package from Rolando Villazon, the repertoir of Zarazuela Arias is a refreshing collection of traditional music. The accompanying DVD gives an insight into the painstaking pursuit of excellence in recording. Comments by Placido Domingo (as conductor) are well made and add to the interest of this combination.

This is by far my favourite Rolanda Villazon disc. I love Zarzuela and play this constantly. I knew a little bit about it from Placido Domingo years ago, but didn't realise how beautiful the music is. I have told friends and relatives (who aren't particularly interested in classical singing) and without exception this has been a hit with them. The DVD is a bonus.
