Mozart’s La finta giardiniera, filmed in 2014 at Lille Opera, is now available on DVD from Erato. Emmanuelle Haïm conducts with style and David Lescot’s straightforward staging is pleasant enough, though not revelatory. Two cast members stand out: Erin Morley’s mellifluous soprano, making seemingly light work of Sandrina, and Enea Scala’s camp Belfiore, who looks as though he might rather plough a furrow with the baritone than help the heroine with weeding her herbaceous borders.
