Movie Reviews

DVD of La Fille du Regiment starring Joan Sutherland
Bill Bass | ypsilanti, Michigan | 08/09/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although an old recording (1986), this is an excellent example of Joan Sutherland in a role for which she was famous. Her voice, and her control of it, is still impressive - although it lacks some of the brilliant clarity it had at its peak. Any Sutherland aficionado will appreciate this performance."
Sutherland should have done comedy sooner!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"When this came out most of us never knew Dame Joan had such a flair for comedy. The only weakness in this delightful production is our tenor who does hit all the notes, and even looks pretty good, but just doesn't have the ring and focus that we would want in Tonio's voice. Other that that I have no complaints. In fact, the character parts couldn't be better and the staging is excellent. I have 12 videos of Fille, most are very good. This is one of the best, other greats being Kraus/Welting and Dessay/Florez and Devia/Kelly.

I have this on vhs so I can't speak to dvd transfer quality or lack thereof."
