Raymond Tuttle
Fanfare, November 2003

A large ensemble of authentic instruments plays passionately. Harpsichord and organ, so prominent in older attempts at presenting L’Orfeo, give way to the warmth of brass and stringed instruments…Sara Mingardo, the production’s Messaggiera, makes an indelible impression not only through her singing, but also through her face, her hands, and her posture. Furio Zanasi uses his facial expressions to convey the fullness of the title character to perfection, and his singing, while classical in style, is full of pathos and expression. The many small but important roles are filled with confidence. If this DVD doesn’t convert you to an appreciation of opera in its earliest dress, then nothing will. © 2003 Fanfare Read complete review on Fanfare
