I had to wait months for this film. I had seen the production at Houston Grand Opera and wanted to see what was done with the film. The wait was well worth it! What fun! Rossini makes some changes to the classic tale, but who cares. Bartoli and the rest of the excellent cast were just wonderful. One small quibble- no subtitles. Even though it is easy to follow, subtitles would have added more depth to a great production. Enjoy!!
