International chess virtuoso François-André Danican Philidor’s fortunes as a musician at the court of Versailles were transformed when he turned his attention to the new genre of opéra-comique. Sancho Pança, gouverneur dans l’isle de Barataria derives from Cervantes’s famous novel Don Quijote, covering Sancho Panza’s adventures as governor of a fictitious island on which a succession of characters plot to cure him of his delusions of grandeur. Opera Lafayette’s production of this comedy revue is a ‘sparkle of shining surfaces’ -  Washington Post

"...The singers are a worthy lot, producing charming, witty, authentic interpretations to be enjoyed over and over again..."

Charles H Parsons - American Record Guide - March 2012

"The music is taut, descriptive and sung by Opera Lafayette with modest emotional coloring that comfortably exemplifies the point. Darren Perry impresses the absurdities of Sancho Pança without overstepping boundaries. During the duel with Don Crispinos, “Une, deux”, both Perry’s and Tony Boutté’s voices mesh with an aesthetic flair. Elizabeth Calleo measures precision and unblemished clarity as Sancho’s wife, Thérèse. The vocal acumens of Meghan McCall as Juliette are sweet, lyrical and pristine, particularly in her aria, “Je vais seulette” where she executes the most marvelous acciaccatura dynamics. One can hear strains of Mozart permeating the score, well highlighted in Sancho’s ‘ball’ aria, “Je suis comme une pauve boule.” The orchestra plays an integral part in magnifying the singers’ feelings; their execution is excellent and demonstrably clear. Philidor’s Sancho Pança is brilliantly captured on this Naxos CD. The acoustics are stellar and even more so when listening on headsets ... Highly recommended."
Christie Grimstad - - January 2012
