‘The production at the Teatro Real in Madrid was a top-of the-range version… Vidal is a peach of a role for Domingo: his voice easily commands its baritone range and he dominates the action, convincingly heroic in voice and figure and still able to project a greying virility in the style of Sean Connery. Nancy Herrara as Luisa and Jose Bros as Javier gave fine support.’ The Independent

BBC Music Magazine

May 2007

****

“…Emilio Sagi's elegant, minimal and warm-hearted staging gives it a full-scale operatic stylishness that is captured vividly for disc… Torroba's score pours enticing melody over traditional dance rhythms… Under Jesús López Cobos it sparkles with woodwind and percussion colour. Nancy Herrera's eloquent mezzo shines in heartfelt duets with both José Bros - a fluent, suave tenor... and... Domingo, who typically paces himself to intensify along with the drama.”
