A rarely heard Bellini masterpiece, Beatrice di Tenda gets a terrific performance from its principals, particularly leading lady Dimitra Theodossiou in the title role.
Cavalli’s Il Giasone, once a staple of the baroque opera stage, is rarely heard today. This Antwerp production combines creative staging with well-turned vocalism and orchestral playing
Shot in composer Puccini’s resort village, this outdoor performance of Madama Butterfly has lackluster singing and downright inferior video properties.
A Rossini Festival performance in Pesaro, this rarely performed opera is well conducted with a vocal mixed bag. Definitely worth watching but with reservations.
