This is a wonderful collection of coloratura pieces. Dessay is tremendous technically, and, though the voice can be a bit thin at times, she is absolutely stunning in this repertoire. As a coloratura-in-training, I am listen in awe as Dessay fools her audience into thinking this is simple stuff! While it may seem to be on the verge of heresey, I much prefer Dessay to Joan Sutherland (though she is indeed La Stupenda) and even enjoy listening to her over Sills. The reviews which comment on Dessay seeming to have a less-than solid sound and comparing her to Fleming may be forgetting that this type of literature cannot afford to sound weighty, nor can the voice perform optimally with a weight up in the rafters! Though I think Fleming is a fine singer, I personally prefer listening to Dessay, and I certainly learn more from the experience. This is an incredible album and a true accomplishment. Also, if Dessay is your cup of tea, check out the recording of Lakme with Dessay in the title role-wow! ---"puccinigirl", amazon.com
