BBC Music Magazine

October 2005

“One of Glyndebourne's most elegant 1980s productions finally reaches DVD, with a superb ensemble cast and Gustav Kuhn's crisply stylish conducting, modern instruments but full score. Valerie Masterson's Constanze is visually and vocally delectable… Ryland Davies is a plangently passionate Belmonte, well contrasted with James Hoback's vulnerable college-kid Pedrillo. As a bass-baritone the young Willard White may underpower Osmin's terrifying lower Cs and Ds, but the voice is so rich and the characterisation to formidable he carries the day - although meeting his match in Lillian Watson's sexy Blonde, crystal-voiced, unexaggerated and wonderfully funny. It could hardly look more ravishing, though, in Bill Dudley's airy settings, radiant with Turkish atmosphere and colour...”

Penguin Guide

****

“The different scenes are beautifully devised by William Dudley...Ryland Davies is a clear-toned Belmonte, with Valerie Masterson sweet, true and agile, singing at her peak...Lillian Watson is charming as Blonde, pertly defying the will of the magnificent Osmin of Willard White...[the staging] is a model of traditional perfection.”
