Modern classic
28 January 2006 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

The rose-tinted Glyndebourne Figaro, a modern classic of the house's favourite opera. Famous as the production which alerted the world to Kiri te Kanawa's undeniable gifts, it also supports a fine cast including the brilliant Frederica von Stade whose Cherubino is matched only by Pamela Helen Stephen for John Eliot Gardiner, on film or on record. There's also the gift of Benjamin Luxon in a role before his debilitating deafness took over; Ilena Contrubas contributes a model, leggiero Susanna.

The production doesn't look great on my VHS - I fear this is more to do with the filming technique than any transfer. One assumes that it is available on DVD to preserve this continuing benchmark of quality. 6/10
