This performance, that is part of the 'Tutto Verdi' series of recordings of all of Verdi's operas, is pretty much the only candidate in the running for this opera on DVD/Blu-ray and since it is such a stunning performance that's no bad thing.

Anna Caterina Antonacci is the most well known name in the cast and sparkles as the Marchesa. The buffo roles are nicely done and all the main roles are sung by Italians, which makes a difference in Verdi's only bel canto comic opera. Donato Renzetti is more than competent and leads the orchestra and singers in this fun comedy with verve and panache. This has to be one of the most successful filmed opera performances from a regional Italian house in recent years.
