A visual must, but shoot the technicians
12 December 2004 | by barry31See all my reviews

I am in love with Maria Ewing. For a singer to combine such vocal skill with beauty and acting ability is all to rare. Ms. Ewing had me gasping. The supporting cast of Jacque Trussel, Alain Fondart and Miriam Gauci were more than up to the task. The staging was mind boggling and at times reminiscent of Cirque du Soleil. The technical and camera work, however, might have been accomplished by a high school sophomore on his first outing. The technical direction was among the worst I have ever seen. Perhaps circumstances precluded a professional filming. Nonetheless the production itself combined with the performances make me wish that I could have seen this production live. Since we can't, owning this video should be mandatory for any opera lover.
