One is attracted to but not overwhelmed by Adriana. The music is lush and the singing gorgeous. But the Princess is a stupid woman who thinks her lover will return to her if she just gets rid of her rival. If you like this cast and this opera, this is an excellent version. If you like conservative productions, you will be extremely happy with this.

I have really enjoyed this opera mainly for the casting and the music. I find that it stays with me forever. My only query would be that I think that the 'ballet' in Act 2 is totally unneccesary and tends to hold the opera up.Jonas Kaufmann and Angela are so well cast together and very believable.
