Customer Review

on 13 June 2014
Prior to purchasing this box my knowledge of baroque opera was limited to a couple of recordings of Dido & Aeneas, Arthur and an awful BBC MM CD of highlights from La Callisto.

Nearly a year in it still doesn't spend much time on the shelf. there is enough fantastic music to keep anyone going for a very long time.

The DVDs are slightly eccentric. The production of Orfeo is distracting from the music whilst Cleopatra & Cesare couldn't be any more camp if it had been designed by Julian Clary.

Many previous reviewers have commented on the quality of the packaging. As the possessor of a number of large box sets I will merely add it is easily the best quality I have ever seen. For this set £150 would be a good price, £100 a bargain. For a little over £50 it is almost theft.
