  • TDK presents a remarkable 2004 staging of one of Bellini’s opera masterpieces on DVD with much celebrated coloratura soprano Eva Mei in one of her best roles as Amina, the sleep-walking heroine, alongside Catalan tenor Jose Bros, a renowned Bellini specialist.
  • This performance at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in 2004 is lead by the superb opera conductor, Daniel Oren, who has a long alliance with Italian opera houses and regularly conducts at the Arena di Verona.
  • The filming of the production draws close to the characters thus bringing the emotional aspect of this opera and the excellent acting to the undisturbed attention of the viewer.
"[Mei’s] voice ¡K is delightfully pure, bright without glare and pointed without being needly-sharp. ¡K Accomplishments of graceful fioriture, including the trill (which Italians have often neglected), and an ease of movement throughout the range add to the attractions of, it would seem, a modestly disposed artist not over-intent upon stamping her personality on these songs or of obtaining effects beyond their apparent scope."-- The Gramophone
