Movie Reviews

Excellent fun and wonderful singing
Anna M. Pezacki | Toronto Canada | 09/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a fan od Ms. Migenes from a long time ago, and always enjoy her CDs. This dvd surprised me a bit, because I - somehow - did not know that Ms. Migenes has wonderful aptitude for comedy.
I highly recommend this DVD to music and fun lovers."

"A stand-up act about opera? It could fail in so many ways. Fortunately, Migenes is both a skilled soprano and a skilled comedian, so it works. It should appeal to both opera fans and opera novices alike. Migenes doesn't rely on in-jokes, and despite her protestations that it's not a recital, her vocal performance is good enough to appeal to a discriminating ear. She deserves 4 stars just for pulling it off, and a 5th for the surprisingly high production values on this DVD. It's enhanced for widescreen, and looks and sounds great.

Definitely worthwhile if you have even the slightest curiosity about opera."

"Julia is top! I enjoyed her Carmen and I wasn't disappointed with this Diva hilarious performance in front of a live audience.
Highly recommended to someone curious about opera."
