It likes Rossini The Cenerentola the plot. Although this a distribution one same opening according to which can say, has had the hard time that finalises it. It is taken me four seeing sessions already but has directed so only partorisca look 2/3 of him. Perhaps it does not have one same catchy arias, i.et. Too many 'commercial Pauses', or so only finds a plot also confusing partorisca follow. Like this far I do not know reason a work is titled The Gazzetta, no active a lot partorisca do with a Gazzetta, but then has not known never reason a Magic Flute has called a magic flute when a flute so only took it cameo function? So only I need some time consecrated partorisca the see again and pay much more attention to a subtitles partorisca see that it is going in. It is still enjoyable, good flange, props(puppets of chicken), jokes. I will update this description when I can appreciate it bit it more...

In any work that record an emphasis is situated in a quality of a sound. Although in 'Gazzetta' an auditor is offered some two sources of sound: Stereo and DTS Suround His, a second source is not playable in player of NORMAL DVD with Dolby Surrond 5.1 characteristic. Appararently DTS (When being partorisca System of Digital Theatre) is in competition with Dolby Surround and purportedly very upper. This in spite of, be forewarned when purchasing 'Gazzetta': unless your equpment specific that can reproduce DTS his, so only will be able to listen the Stereo version of this work, which is more reminiscent of a register of equivalent of old and in of the places some vocal parts almost totally overwhelms it an orchestral accompaniment.

Formed: DVD has has WANTED this dvd so that it has bought the second copy of him partorisca share my obsession with the partner!
Beverly Sills Popularised These decades of the work done, when you interpret Manon that he jolly daughter of country that loves party.
Natalie Dessay The interpretation of Manon is more nuanced, with early clues of the melancholy that & presages in his memorable Gavotte.
So much sopranos spend formidable coloratura technical to his actions -- but I credit Dessay with the most delicate approximation.
The bear declares an obvious? Dessay The action is more French (obviously). As it suspects that his technician is Manon more next classical that Massenet envisioned.
10/10 For this sublime dvd.

Formed: Blue-ray Usually, am conjoint died against modernized versions of classical works, but this production of Manon of Massenet did not impact me. Neither some saw neither a decoration has done an incomprehensible plot. Some two main singers, Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon, to access perfectly likes the tragic pair of lovers. They are exceptional, as I have expected. As it was a Berlin Staatskapelle has directed for Daniel Barenboim. I am not sure of a purpose of having some looks of replies of phase he of Vichy or estaca-Vichy France, but some dresses and decor did not derail a plot and I have thinks that, in general, ossia the very good production . This in spite of have enjoyed a lot of look this action, has not gone entirely enthralled for a work. In fact, I have discovered that they are not the defender adds of Massenet. There is the good operatic tradition French, but so only little of the French composers have bred a French work to a height of Italian, German, or Russian work, and think that Massenet is not among them. But some producers, the singers and the orchestra have had sucedido in doing an excellent production out of this Massenet acts.

I love the Cenerentola and have a lot of productions. This one east a worse for far and am speaking them on some settings, dresses and scenography. The flange is good or add. I have bought this DVD mostly because of JDF. Joyce has data Donado is excellent in a function of title. A rest of a mould is well, difficult to compare with other productions, liked still of both Dandini and the gentleman Augments and WOW Alindoro so only has surprised. I have hated Some mice that answered all some scenes. They are not against some dancers of actors or poor ballet that has touched these functions. They were utmost, but an idea is disgusting. The dresses were like this modern takes on cloths of time of the Mozart. Odd and guess uncomfortable. But if any calm worry you in a visual part, ossia the a lot of The Cenerentola.

The value that shabby loves music. A staging is poor... Dark and difficult to see that it is Natalie and Simon is exceptional.

Top Customer Reviews: Janacek - Jenufa ...

Rating: 4 out of 5 with 1 ratings

Highly it recommends this Leos Janacek production of Jenufa. I have seen other productions
and probably some acting and singing of Eva Marton has the plot partorisca do with his success. Some other singers are a lot treating also. There is not pessimist view of human character in Jenufa, any moral test that limit a future partorisca his protagonists- there is always rebirth and hope like premised for character, an idea reflected in this production for a staging of a sowing and reaping of a harvest. You are registered alive in a Big Teatre of the Liceu, Barcellona, 27th May/2 June 2005.

Top Customer Reviews: Wagner: Die Walkure ...

Rating: 4 out of 5 with 3 ratings
5 / 5
Nach dem sehr guten Rheingold,Die Fortsetzung gives zweiten Coverage-Konzeptes von Harry Kupfer in bĂŒhnenbildlich mythischer Struktur. Hans-Schavernoch zeichnet verantwortlich fĂŒr gives sehr dĂŒstere BĂŒhnenbild, dessen Bases einen interpretatorischen Denkansatz beinhaltet, gives man auch als 'ökologisch' bezeichnen könnte. Sobald Gives Mensch aus gives Reigned unreflektieren Naturebene heraustritt, also denkend wird, beginnt gives Kreislauf give MachtausĂŒbung und GefĂ€hrdung gives Schöpfung.

Dies ist kein 'verfĂ€lschender Ansatz' wie von ĂŒbereifrigen, aber belegbar fachlich unwissenden Propheten gives ausschließlich Traditionellen behauptet wird. Hierzu folgendes Wagner Zitat, aus einem Informs an August Röckel vom : soyein Gedicht zeigt is. It is zeigt Die Natur in ihrer unentstellten Wahrheit dipped all ihren GegensĂ€tzen, given in ihren unendlich mannigfaltigen Begegnungen auch gives allseits Abstoßende enthalten.' Weiter heißt Is: ' Kaum bemerkte ich nun aber wie ich has dipped to give AusfĂŒhrung, ja im Grunde schon has dipped to give Anlegung gives Slowly unbewußt einer ganz anderen, tieferen Anschauung folgte, und, anstatt einer the phase gives Weltentwicklung give Wesen give Welt selbst in allen seinen erdenklichen Phasen erschaut und in seiner Nichtigkeit erkannt hatte.' As könnte fortlaufend zu gives Werkintentionen Wagners zitiert werden. Damit wird klargelegt, daß eine einfĂ€ltig, romantisierend, mythisch mĂ€rchenhafte Wagner Sicht, dem weltanschaulichen Denker Wagner nicht gerecht wird. Wenn Is aus bestimmten traditionellen Lagern, generell abgelehnt wird, sich place Wagners belegbaren Werk-Intentionen inhaltlich auseinanderzusetzen, like zeugt gives eher von einer psychischen Zwangsvergesellschaftung und schwarmgeistiger Ausrichtung has dipped imaginierten Wunschinhalten, aber nicht has dipped Fakten, die wissenschaftlich dokumentiert sind.

Quotes sĂ€ngerische Umsetzung ist insgesamt auf recht unterschiedlichem Level. Überzeugend wirken Falk Struckmann als Wotan Has dipped kernig, knorrigem Bassbariton und einer allerdings teilsweise,recht nasalen Intonation, man of data mögen muß. Eric Halvarson als Hunding und Lioba Braun als Fricka agieren ebenfalls ansprechend. Deborah Polaski als BrĂŒnnhilde und Pleasant Watson als Sieglinde singen durchaus involvierend, aber leider ist gives the tonne gives Höhen, in giving forcierten Gesangsattacke, zu oft reichlich verzerrt.(Abgehört ĂŒber professionelles Crew). Obi Gives ein Einzelproblem bei dieser DVD ist, kann nicht ermittelt werden. Insofern ist Die Beurteilung place diesem Vorbehalt zu verstehen. Schwachpunkt ist Gives Siegmund von Richard Berkeley-Steele. Ein In giving ExpansionsfĂ€higkeit begrenzter Tenor, dem gives klangsinnliche Bell leider fehlt.
Bertrand of Billy dirigiert ĂŒberzeugend.

Insgesamt eine aufgrund Gives sÀngerischen und tontechnischen Ambivalenz schwierig zu bewertende Aufnahme. Zu empfehlen nur dem, gives sich zwingend ein eigenes Bild goes DVD-Einspielungen gives Coverages machen möchte, die auf dem Markt vertreten sind.

This edition of DVD has goodness. Both audio and the video are extremely very registered and mastered, and of the purely technical point of view this disk is the pleasure partorisca look and listen to. There is also exceptional actions, both vocally and dramatically, of Deborah Polaski and Pleasant Watson. An orchestra touches the bit undermanned, but partorisca that is able of the welcome agility and precision that Wagner-sized the orchestras often do lacking still to rid. Unfortunately, a production is marred for any number of beast directorial decisions. Especially, Falk Struckmann Wotan, costumed like this Ming a Merciless, constantly is bouncing around a phase in the constant, churned rap mainstay ossia hardly a tongue of pertinent organism partorisca one the majority of thoughtful character in a cycle, or partorisca a work of a cycle that more would have to that underline that thoughtfulness. An effect of of the this is partorisca tend to turn Wagner is long meditation on liberty and slavery to a class of empty bombast that Wagner-haters has thought always was. There it has more than this ilk. It decides like this partorisca present some heroes are died a manager resembles has been channeling George Rosmarino: one can so only surmise the one who that takes to do fault up in a trenchers in this manager is very personal Valhalla is brains. One could go in -- I could a lot of fathom, for example, reason BrĂŒnnhilde smears Siegmund hair & of face with those looks first cold cream of a fight with Hunding (is is some detail of Edda that I am not familiarised with or is so only of entity partorisca condition before battle?). In general, ossia still another of these soyodern' productions this is seen more with your eyes have closed.

One first production of Coverage for Harry Kupfer has been created partorisca a Bayreuth festival of 1988 as perhaps the response to a famous Chereau Centennial Coverage. This DVD is not a Bayreuth production, but the up to date version for Kupfer in a 1990 east and comes originally of a Work of Berlino Unter give Linden, now treated to Barcellona in these disks. Kupfer Sticks the industrial setting there is now result an end-of-the world-wide vision dominated for the dark colours and a world-wide ash never presents cut the pieces. Unfortunately an original Bayreuth Walkure is almost entirely unobtainable, but know that it has been directed for Barenboim and has looked John adds Tomlinson like Wotan. Neither of present sound here and is sorely has lost.

Begins in the positive note, ossia the stunning production . Although a together still is used throughout , is not never changing because of multilayering of transparencies and fantastic lighting effects. A transformation of Hunding the cabin is particularly good-looking and a scene of the end of Magic fire is for real memorable. In a Walk of a Walkyries a Manager has the novel idea to resurrect some cadaveri of heroes one for one - this probably ameno a concept of a 'warrior maidens' more afterwards to an original myth.

I singers are almost all very competent and some are exceptional. An American soprano, Deborah Polasky is probably one of a reigning Brunnhildes of today and is in shape upper. Pleasant Watson,also American, is the ardent, strong Sieglinde, beautiful to look in. Hunding Of Eric Halfvarson is the descendant of the long line of awe-inspiring Finn bassos with the stentorian voice, the credit adds to a production.

Fricka,(Lioba Braun) HAS laws and presence of sound creditably, but his voice is a bit underpowered. An American tenor, Richard Berkeley-Steele creates the viril and sympathetic Siegmund with the well, heroic voice.

Wotan Of Falk Struckmann is the question mark of mine, has work and the utmost power but I have not felt never comfortable like his voice sometimes felt ailing-concentrated in Law 2. This in spite of him on partorisca this splendidly in a 3rd law, especially in Wotan Goodbye. But still, as I have said sooner, it is any comparison to John Tomlinson.

One that directs of Bertrand of Billy is generally competent sometimes has included inspired, but that lacking of an originality and concept of Daniel Barenboim. An orchestra I half tax so only.

The sum up: an imaginative conception, serious without directorial self-indulgences (eg. A Coverage of Stuttgart). More than versions of modern day, comes with good-looking booklet and a lot extra. Highly recommended.

Top Customer Reviews: Otello [Blu-ray] ...

Rating: 4 out of 5 with 1 ratings
4 / 5
This DVD of Greens is 'Otello', a function of title duquel is one of one the majority of arduous in a tenor mainstream operatic repertory, is a lot that satisfies musically and dramatically, especially in a part of José Cures likes Otello of him, but also in some other functions. Which limits an appeal of have opposite Video of Art (the two-DVD spouse duquel hold a number of catalogue OA-0963-D) is Willy Decker is extremely barren staging. Felizmente, while there is almost very real scenery and little props averts of a gigantic cross always present, some spades, the dagger, and a lot much more, some soloist and the heart is amiably costumed, which taking creates he of the has bitten a lack of a lot of of anything scenically the cement that surrounds him on stage like this law and sing. Any reservation there is roughly this, at least this almost-the abstract production is not one of a hideous 'Rubbish of Euro' abominations that is like this prevalent on phase and on video today.

José Cures sing and laws heroically and with utmost fervour, if heroes like this military or like this lover. His big voice no tip never the trace of committed to his vocal resources seemingly boundless. It is a lot up there among Otellos likes Carlos Cossuta, Giacomo Giacomini, or Plåcido Sunday. He no quite achieve a supreme order of Mario of Monk in a function of title of this work, but the priest comes more afterwards to this model gold that all but very few recent tenors , and, visually that pause, the priest has the plot of a viril appeal that even more good-looking of Monk like this exudes, and Cure vocal and acting control is wonderful the behold and to listen.

While Krassimira Stoyanova does not erase the memories of one likes of Renata Tebaldi or Margaret Estimativas, among others famous interpreters of Desdemona function, trace to some challenges, equally in of the dramatic situations and Desdemona lovely melancholic and elegiac music in a last law, in the expensive Otello unjust anger in his supposĂšd infidelity and dies in his hands. His supposition of a function of Otello luckless the woman absolutely is in satisfactory.

One the stunning successful majority and amazing, this in spite of, is Side of baritone Ataneli likes Iago, Otello venal nemesis, and tenor Vittorio Grigolo Cassio. I have found especially impressive in Ataneli action a sheer musicality and technical courage that has in such abundance. An example, in that he triumphantly tip his Verdian credentials, is like this sings Iago is drinking song ('Inaffia the ugola') law A. Some chromatic careers, like the edges, is not an usual ugly smear to the that the majority of baritones reduces them; if to the some notes like Ataneli sings them is perhaps of any quite clear enough to present to the student in a class that ear of bus like musical dictation, still is sufficiently diverse any one to look simply to be some class of excluyentes downward or swoops! Ataneli sheer The musicality is for real exceptional. It is not visually a plus memorable Iago that one can imagine, but his acting is more than passable, as he, regarding his contributo own, has executed the concepts of a manager of phase. Considering Vittorio Grigolo Cassio, Hollywood good looks, like this athletically trim and accesses (was so that visas shirtless, torso coffins of a waist on), ally with his romantically youthful and impetuous acting, marks his work to be among some signals underlined of this production staged. Grigolo lirico-Pushed Contrast of voices effectively with Curing immense dramatic tenor vocal presence and, Cassio is not the function that offered a maximum for his talents, Grigolo the flange is not that of an usual lacklustre comprimario that one expects to find in this part. Cassio, In this action, results much more the centre of the interest that would not have thought never possible, when being quite credibly convincing like rivals for Desdemona amour that Otello wrongly suspect to be.

Ossia A exceptionally well and equally launches 'Otello', without vocal weaknesses in any of some functions of entities or secondary. If it was not for such austerely bleak staging, this DVD would deserve a description of Amazon fill of five stars. A heart sings acceptably, although his intonation occasionally leaves so only the little has bitten to be wished, and a Big Teatre of the Liceu the orchestra has trace now to some considerable challenges of Green orchestral writing in the way that the has not directed always do this competently in the past with a longitude of a company of Barcellona. Credits and notes (comprising synopsis) is appropriate in an absence of a plenary libretto; there is characteristic of brief prize, comprising a concealed explains the action of a work, keyed to a production seen, more seen previously the playback of a work he so that they do not know a good work. A subtitles is good and, of course, quite useful also.
