In a world that has a plethora of good "Figaro" recordings, it is nice to have one that rises to the top at the level of the Solti recording. Jacobs and his cast do a wonderful job of capturing the humor in da Ponte's words, and the playfulness in Mozart's music. While the entire cast bring the immediacy and sparkle of a staged production, Keenlyside's smooth baritone shines through as the voice to listen to. His mellow tones and charismatic presence bring a very seductive nobility to the role. This Figaro deserves a place on anyone's shelf. The sound quality is excellent, the conducting crisp and vibrant, and the singing...well, not only does everyone have a marvelous voice, but the were also encouraged to ACT while they were singing! A rare thing in opera! Deffinitely a must own!
