An odd production.
- Orphee Et Eurydice review by DW
Magnificent singing from Kozena and company but one was utterly distracted by the strange, over-stylised production which quite took away just about all the pleasure I had expected from such a stellar cast and such wonderful music. I had the same reaction to the Rameau opera I had also recently anticipated viewing with enjoyment although, while this production could almost be described as "frozen", the Ramaeu was utterly manic. In each case i was driven to switch off before the end of the first act. How I wish they'd just leave the music to speak for itself.

Compelling production & singing
- Orphee Et Eurydice review by IQ
There are few good DVDs of operas. This is a good one. Brilliant production and singing. The expressionist production suits the music and Magdalena Kozena sings and acts really well.
