Ariadne auf Naxos (DVD) - Met Opera

Item# 1000005693

Recorded in 2003 at the Metropolitan Opera, this sumptuous production of Ariadne auf Naxos presents divas Deborah Voigt and Natalie Dessay in the contrasting roles which embody the opera's themes: the deserted princess Ariadne, a 'one-man woman' who believes in loyalty unto death, and the flirtatious comedienne Zerbinetta, who takes a more pragmatic attitude to love and to life.

Ariadne's noble, soaring lines gave Voigt a major breakthrough in 1991, when she sang the role in Boston, and it subsequently became her signature role. Zerbinetta exemplifies the dizzy coloratura characters which first made Dessay's reputation.
