". . . finally Sir Giorgio Valton - with whose persona the Parisian bass-baritone Nicolas Testé embodies with great success  - has convinced the father of Elvira to allow his daughter to marry the man she loves, Arthur, rather than him."

{. . . finalmente sir Giorgio Valton – en cuya piel se mete el bajo-barítono parisino Nicolas Testé con gran acierto – haya convencido al padre de Elvira para que permita a su hija casarse con el hombre que ama, Arturo, en vez de con él.}
