Besides being a terrific musical evening, the travelogue aspect made it doubly appealing, and would serve as a great souvenir for anyone who has been to St Petersburg, and an extra spur for those contemplating such a trip.
I am a big fan of Renee Fleming and Dmitri Hvorostovsky and that is why I knew that eventually I was going to buy this DVD.
When I saw these two singers performing together in Eugene Oneguin aside of that they are very good singers they also have chemistry when they act together.
The parts that I enjoyed the most were when they sang together, in this DVD they do some duets and they have to play different roles, like lovers, daughter and father, etc and they do it very well like those feelings are really true, they also sang different areas and songs very well.
This DVD also can be very enjoyable for people that are not into opera because it also shows this beautiful city, its history and art as well as all the palaces they sang. Renee Fleming narrates episodes from the history of Saint Petersburg that can be also very interesting and with a lot of information that of course the DVD has to be watched more than once to get all this knowledge, but that is good if someone is going to buy a DVD is to see it many times and enjoy it.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. ANYTHING BY RENEE AND DMITRI IS WORTH HAVING IN YOUR MUSIC COLLECTION.
My only quibbles: Fleming's two dresses were cut precariously low and Hvorostovsky should have been allowed to narrate some of the short side tours since he is Russian.
I repeat, "in every respect".
Higher praise have I not.
