Mozart's lovely opera done by extraordinary cast
29 June 2014 | by suzannadaviSee all my reviews

I have watched many versions of this opera but love none so much as this one. I am very sad that the Met sells it only in a large box of stuff I don't want for an a price too large to justify just the purchase of this beautiful gem. I think they did it on purpose to induce people to by stuff they would otherwise never purchase. I have to make do with scraps on youtube.com. The staging as well as the joyful acting and beautiful singing make this a paradise. I know many do not like Kathleen Battle or her problems that caused her to be dropped, but here is a perfect cast, Count Almaviva by Thomas Allen, Frederika von Stade as Cherubino, Ruggier Raimondi as Figaro and Carol Van Ness as the Countess...truly a cast to sigh over. The settings are done with such beauty and care - it is a feast for the eyes as well as the ears.
