MOZART, W.A.: Nozze di Figaro (Le) (Opera Australia, 2010) (NTSC) OPOZ56001DVD

…this version is very, very good. The conductor, Patrick Summers…is excellent. Teddy Tahu Rhodes is a fine Mozart singer. He is also a fine actor and a very good Figaro. Taryn Fiebig is a dynamic Susanna. She sings brightly and brings to her role a vivacious sense of delight. The Countess, Rachelle Durkin…sings well. Sian Pendry is an excellent Cherubino; she sings beautifully and acts superbly. Warwick Fyfe is a good Dr. Bartol…Kanen Breen steals the show with a great performance as Don Basilio…Both Jacqueline Dark and Claire Lyon are also very good as Marcellina and Barbarina.

Patrick Summers’s conducting is excellent. The production is interesting…The picture quality and the sound are excellent. It is certainly worth having for those who love this opera. © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review
