On this DVD one gets to see and hear not only two great virtuosos in what must be their absolute singing prime, but also two incredible actors who obvious absolutely love what they are doing: And if that wasn't enough you get to listen to a magnificent orchestra who has a conductor (Myung-Whun Chung)with impeccable timing. Also the camera work and film editing is wonderfully done (Brian Large): just the right facial expression, just the right cut to the next camera for the most appropriate view: just the right angle to see the cello player come in on a certain note to accompanying the vocalist.
I would like to add that this has, without a doubt, become my favorite opera DVD: and Donizetti's "Quanto amore" from the Elixer of Love is my favorite piece. Although there are several others that are truly wonderful ("madamina", "La ci darem la mano" and "Pa-pa-pa" just to mention a few)
It is the definitive mix of Singer-Conductor-Orchestra blending together to become an indivisible, single entity.
This performance is magic, just magic! What a thrill it must have been to have witnessed live; Too bad there wasn't more.
I've owned the "Cecilia and Bryn" CD since it came out and had hoped to somehow see them performing the duets live. Well, here it is and it's much better than I imagined. The flirtatious play between these two is honest and brings a sparkling character to their music. The "Figaro" suite will bring a smile as will the duet from "Elixer."
The film crew did a great job of giving us a prime seat to a wonderful concert. The sound is superb and of course the voices are unequaled. I hope this is just one of many colaborations between these great artists.
