1 - Kaufmann is a pleasure as both Lindoro and the shepherd, whose song with bagpipe accompaniment lends an exotic air to the opera.

2 - The rest of the top-notch cast includes the heroic, attractive tenor of Jonas Kaufmann, who brings a nice swagger to the lover, Lindoro, and...

3 - Jonas Kaufmann’s fascinating voice brings moments of interest and pleasure, and László Polgár’s easy resonance and distinctive appearance are similarly welcome.

4 - It's also well cast, with Laszlo Polgar sonorously sombre as Nina's remorseful father, Jonas Kaufmann pingingly baritonal as her tenor lover, presumed dead.

5 - Neither her impressive vocal flights, nor the strong singing of Jonas Kaufmann as her lover and László Polgár as her father, come across with the vividness they deserve.

6 - Kaufmann shows here why his star rose so quickly at the turn of the century, singing with both bravura strength and finesse, as well as a handsome stage appearance.
