"The performance is most valuable for capturing Flórez at his best in this role. The most famous aria, ‘Ah! mes amis’ in Act I, has those nine infamous high C's just about as perfect as they could be, all lined up and pure. The crowd went wild, shouting "Bis, bis," and Flórez sang the second part of the aria ‘Pour mon âme’ a second time, just as flawlessly. If that is not enough, he also sings an excellent high D in the Act II romance ‘Pour me rapprocher de Marie’. It is a stellar performance, which he has been recreating in other theaters."
