Review at guardian.co.uk, 4 stars

“Superstar tenor Juan Diego Florez doesn’t seem like a natural for ‘Orphee,’ but in the French three-act version heard on this extraordinary recording, he leaves no room for doubt: This is the most persuasive and affecting performance I’ve heard of ‘Orphee,’ and say what you want, it matters that a strong tenor voice is heard in the title role, rather than counter-tenor or soprano.”–Jay Furst, Post-Bulletin
