Juan Diego Florez and Natalie Dessay an Inspired Pairing!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: La fille du régiment [DVD]  [NTSC]  [Region 1] (DVD)
Wonderfully entertaining with these two artists whose acting and interaction with each other and the other cast members is in itself terrific to watch. Juan Diego is completely at ease with the role of Tonio and this part could have been written for him. His voice as always a marvellous instrument and he makes it seem so easy and therefore enables the audience to lose themselvesin for a while whilst appreciating a truly gifted tenor. Natalie Dessay is perfect for the part of Marie, her facial expressions and body language coupled with that as always lovely voice gives an exemplary performance. The other cast members give outstanding performances too,and we cannot forget Dawn French as La Duchesse de Crackentorp......just a terrific performance from her. All in all a totally engrossing, enjoyable production. I have no hesitation in recommending that you don't miss this....buy it you won't regret it!
