Customer Review

on 20 May 2006
Having owned this opera on video for years then purchased the new DVD, I was curious to see if I preferred the earlier Met version. I agree Scotto is a wonderful actress but I feel Domingo is more committed to the role in this Covent Garden version. Also the chemistry he and Te Kanawa have together surpasses that with Scotto at the Met. They just seem more of a devoted couple. The singing in both is glorious but Domingo looks younger ,more like the student, in the Cov Gdn version in spite of being older! I think its the hair style and he is slimmer in 1983, anyway he looks more the part. I also feel the Gotz Friedrich staging is more attractive than that at the Met and Thomas Allen as Lescaut clinches it for me, as he is such a fine actor and has great fun with this role. If you can only buy one I'd say, get this one.
