30 of 31 people found the following review helpful By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 27, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Stendhal, in his biography of Rossini, writes that not long after a performance of 'La Cenerentola' begins he starts feeling almost nauseated, and eventually indicates this is due to the opera's 'banality' and 'lack of idealism.' Well, I don't know what Stendhal was talking about. Generations of opera-goers have found it utterly delightful, and anyone who listens to this live performance from the Rossini in Wildbad (Germany) Festival will likely agree. The music is vintage Rossini, written right after 'Barbiere di Siviglia.' The conductor is one of the most respected Rossini scholars around, and he is conducting his own edition of the work. Indeed, Alberto Zedda is the editor of the Rossini Gesamtausgabe (Complete Edition), director of the Pesaro (Italy) Rossini Opera Festival, and has probably conducted more performances of Rossini operas than anyone alive. The Rossini in Wildbad Festival has introduced many young Rossini singers to the world and in this performance we get to hear the cream of the coming crop. The Cenerentola (Joyce Di Donato) is no stranger to the role, having sung it in several other productions (among them La Scala), including one I saw in her hometown, Kansas City; she was simply sensational then as she is in this performance. Di Donato is a comer; among other things she sang Sister Helen Prejean in the première of Jake Heggie's 'Dead Man Walking.' She has a rich, flexible mezzo, is a consummate actor with the voice and has perfect control of Rossini's fioriture.

The other singers in the cast do equally well. José Manuel Zapata is a lyrical and lovable prince, Don Ramiro. He and Di Donato sound marvelous together as the young lovers. Paolo Dordogna scores as Don Ramiro's valet who masquerades as the prince.

Under the baton of Alberto Zedda, probably the best Rossini-conductor of our time, Joyce DiDenato creates a wonderful portrait of the unfortunate girl who wins the prince at the end. I have had the great fortune to hear Joyce DiDonate in the same role in Barcelona, and I simply adore her!

Reviewer Morrison has nailed it on this one, so I won't repeat what he has written about this marvellous performance. I think it is Joyce DiDonato's first commercial recording and she does her usual incredible performance with a rich, creamy voice and incredible bel canto technique. Jose Manuel Zapata is a near perfect Prince Ramiro with a light and agile technique that doesn't miss a beat. I have liked Bruno Pratico in anything I have seen or heard and he does not disappoint. Conductor Alberto Zedda is new to me, but he is totally with the score, producing what may be the best conducted Cenerentola I have heard.

This is my first CD version; I have four DVDs and usually prefer to watch. But I am delighted with this set, especially at the reasonable price Naxos sells for. I expect that it will get played a lot here. Bravi! Tutti bravii!!
