Thanks for all your comments. I know that some of the arias have been sung by famous and highly regarded artists. In truth, I found myself distracted by the, er, unusual production ( Now what on earth is going on ?) that for the most part I registered the very, very fine singing without thinking too much about the individual arias. I am still not a particular fan of them - "dai campi, dai prati" I have always found bland. But still, I certainly understand all your points of view. I don't think that I will be watching this DVD again.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
