Verdi: Un Ballo in Maschera (2 DVD)
This DVD features Luciano Pavarotti in one of his most celebrated roles in a classic, all-star performance of one of the great Verdi operas, Un Ballo in Maschera. Available for the first time on DVD, the complete opera of the classic 1980 production by Elijah Moshinsky was filmed live from The Metropolitan Opera.

Wagner, Michael Schonwandt: Siegfried (2 DVD)
Kasper Bech Holten's spectacular Copenhagen production presents Wagner's epic Ring cycle as the drama of its heroine Brunnhilde. By setting each of the four operas in a pivotal decade of the twentieth century, her story becomes also a history of the modern age and of the ideologies and conflicts that tore it apart. In the third part of Wagner's Ring cycle, the fearless hero Siegfried breaks free of the restrictions of his youth, and sets off in search of freedom, adventure and, ultimately, love.

Giacomo Puccini / Bruno Bartoletti: Tosca Tosca
This gripping and visually stunning film has been universally hailed as one of the most satisfying of all versions of opera on celluloid. Director Gianfranco de Bosio has given an extraordinary dimension of realism to this story of love, deception and murder by shooting it all on the original Roman locations. The three exceptional singer-actors who bring this classic tragedy vividly to life are the beautiful Bulgarian soprano Raina Kabaivanska as Puccini's passionate heroine, Placido Domingo as her doomed lover and Sherrill Milnes as their nemesis, the villainous Baron Scarpia. ...

Puccini, Nicola Luisotti: La Fanciulla Del West (2 DVD)
"I cannot think of a soprano who can sing any better this demanding role. What wins you over is Voigt's deep feeling for the character. The role of Johnson gives Giordani ample opportunities to luxuriate in tenorial top notes and unleash impassioned phrases. Gallo is a coolly menacing Jack Ranee. Thanks in large part to the stylish, nuanced and sensitive conducting of Nicola Luisotti, the score emerged as arguably Puccini's most subtly written and boldly modern music".
