Lovely Rise in Lovely DVD
Harrison L. Adams | USA | 06/21/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Every moment of these historic Risë Stevens telecasts from "The Voice of Firestone" is a pleasure to hear. Stevens' beautiful voice shines, caresses and seduces the listener. True, this are not restored footage; however, when one overlooks this, a very lovely program is at hand to be savored."
Interesting historic recording

"Rise Stevens was a very good singer. The problem with this DVD (which is of TV broadcasts of the early 1950s) is that television at that time was rather crude by todays standards (both audio & video) and this DVD does not seem to be technically updated. Also, like many opera singers, she was much better in the arias than the songs. However, it is interesting to see the kind of programs available on comercial TV back then."
