“José Antonio Gutiérrez's production is, by definition, ultra-traditional, but everything looks beautiful thanks to Cabanes's feeling for colour - ochres and blues dominate - and perspective. Cabanes… achieved breathtaking atmosphere through trompe-l'oeil effects painted on paper. It's for his designs that this DVD is really worth having, though they house a fine performance under the secure baton of Miguel Ángel Gómez Martínez. Daniela Dessì is strong if occasionally strident in the title role, and Elisabetta Fiorillo is a commanding Amneris.”
