I know I am no authority on opera even though I have been a fan of both Carreras and Kraus for a good many years. Within the past week I heard both of these tenors in the role of Werther and have to say I was disappointed with the Kraus interpretation. To me, HIS was the thin and strained voice , not Bocelli's. I found Bocelli's voice to be rich and warm where it should be and purposely less so when the situation called for it. I can't imagine anyone not thoroughly enjoying this production because to my ear all of the cast were quite good and you will not find any opera music more beautiful than in this "Werther". It is a most satisfying experience!
