I did really love this opera from de beginning to the end.

I enjoyed the melody and the superb performances of the artists : especially Mrs Antonacci, Mrs Devia (which is for me a nice discovery) and Mr Meli.

I also love to listen for the first time at Mrs Antonacci in Italian. She have a beautyfull voice.

This is for me a very good opéra.
