 5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely in every way, including unlisted Magic Flute after the flowers

May 7, 2010

Cecilia Bartoli, Bryn Terfel

 I am not an opera expert, but I like opera and I especially like duets, and that is why I ordered this knowing little of the stars.

The other reviews are more expert, for me this was a hit on voices; on beautifully timed focus on specific instruments and specific musicians contributing to the larger event (a third of the DVD); and finally, not listed and after the flowers, an “unscheduled” duet, Mozart’s Magic Flute, Pan Pan…etcetera.

I will certainly use this totally satisfactory offering to search for “more like this.”
