Jonas Kaufmann. Gounod: Faust (2 DVD)
Jonas Kallmann's "tender lyricism" and "fearless high notes" created a "vocally splendid Faust" in Tony Award winner Des McAnuff's "theatrically daring" 2011 production for the Met (The New York Times). Also including the "outstanding" Rene Pape (New York Daily News) and the "daring" Marina Poplavskaya (Financial Times) and supported with "buoyancy and French flair" by star conductor Yannick Nezet-Seguin (Wall Street Journal), McAnuff's atomic-age vision of Gounod's melodrama entertains and compels.
Libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carre, based on Carre's play Faust et Marguerite and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's play Faust, Part I. Faust - Jonas Kaufmann Mephistopheles - Rene Pape Wagner - Jonathan Beyer Valentin - Russell Braun Siebel - Michele Losier Marguerite - Marina Poplavskaya Marthe - Wendy White

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Die Zauberflote (Blu-ray)
Part of the epoch-making release of Mozart's complete operas on film, Pierre Audi's production of this blithe fable suggests an operatic Garden of den, enhanced by the primary-coloured, story-book designs of Karel Appel. The tale of two young men...
Donizetti: Don Pasquale (Blu-ray)
Tenorr star Juan Diego Florez sings the role of the young lover Ernesto in Donizetti's sparkling operatic comedy. Filmed live at the Zurich Opera House, this witty and colourful production also stars the great bass-baritone Ruggero Raimondi in the title-role of the irascible Don. The story of young love triumphant inspired many of the composer's most infectiously toe-tapping ensembles and most tender arias, establishing Don Pasquale as one of Italian opera's most irresistible evenings.

Bruce Springsteen: Between The Lull And The Storm
How different the career and music of Bruce Springsteen could have turned out had it not been for his legally enforced recording hiatus, witnessed between the release of his celebrated "Born To Run" album and the delayed but extraordinary follow-up, "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" - almost three years later. Despite the undeniable strength of his 75 opus, during this break from the studio, many wondered if the future of rock n' roll' was a one trick pony who had somehow managed to capture the imagination of the media for a brief moment, but in reality was just yet another "new Bob Dylan" who got lucky.
Opinion changed dramatically when "Darkness" hit the stores in Spring 1978, with the record impressing all quarters of the music community, even scooping album of the year in the then mighty-hip N.M.E, beating selections that year by the fashionable likes of The Jam, Siouxsie & The Banshees and Talking Heads to the top spot.The record was also launch pad for an extraordinary era in Springsteen's career, as first base for a triumvirate of albums - he followed it with the quite remarkable "The River" and the downbeat but iconic "Nebraska" - all prior to his first taste of the real big-time which saw a very different songwriter to that which had composed his first six records, emerge.
This film examines the period between the start of the lull and the threat of the storm, when Bruce Springsteen recorded and released, arguably, the finest music he was ever going to make. Featuring rare and classic performance footage, archive interviews with the Boss himself, contributions from those who know the man best and who were around him during the 1975-1985 period, plus seldom seen photographs, news reports, newly discovered film material and some of the finest music ever made!...
Verdi, Marco Armiliato: Il Trovatore
Libretto By Salvadore Cammarano
And Leone Emanuele Вardare
,Based On The Play El Trovator By Antonio Garcia Gutierrez.
Acclaim for this Trovatore: "Alvarez made a stalwart, passionate, masculine figure... Radvanovsky has all the technical devices necessary for Leonora, and she is, moreover, a passionate actress ... Hvorostovsky sang with superb, flawless line, total control and long, flowing, high notes... Zajick held down Azucena powerfully, lacking nothing obvious of the mad gypsy's force of character... The opera's end I have never seen stayed or acted more convincingly" (Opera Today).
