    Not sure. Listening to the clips may reveal something. Nice clear, clean sound. Great vocal clarity. Voices seem to be up front, very clear in front of the orchestra, which is nice.

    I hate this opera! But I love it too, so can't help getting a second dose (after the Fleming/Villazon set). This one won't have the great tenor, but definitely a great soprano.
