The Doors: From The Outside
This brand new documentary film tells the story of The Doors, not from the perspective of the surviving members - as has been told so many time before - but from the recollections, memories, stories and anecdotes of those who knew the group and its members best.
Our panel is headed by a woman who was as close to Jim Morrison as anyone ever was; his widow Patricia Kennealy-Morrison. Patricia has rarely spoken on film about her relationship with Jim, or about her own memories of The Doors. This is a once in a lifetime contribution from someone who knew just about everything that went on.
Next up is Billy James, the man who "discovered" Jim Morrison and an early incarnation of The Doors. Billy signed them to their first deal with Columbia Records, and gained the trust and respect of the entire group. Here he tells all about those very early days when The Doors were known only to a select few.
Richard Goldstein – ex-editor of Village Voice and close friend of the band is on hand too with his anecdote-heavy version of events, as is Mark Benno, the legendary blues musician whose searing guitar graced the L.A. Woman album.
The very finest Rock journalists and writers, and those who lived through and were affected by The Doors' music as it was being released also contribute to this most original documentary film. In this regard, we are joined by Robert Christgau, Johnny Rogan, Dave DiMartino, Ritchie Unterberger, Doug Sundling, and Jim Morrison’s biographer James Riordan.
The programme is further enhanced by the rarest footage of the band in existence, classic live and studio musical performances, seldom seen photographs, news clips, location shots and much more....

Cecilia Bartoli, Javier Camarena. Rossini: Le Comte Ory (Blu-ray)
Wagner, James Levine: Siegfried (2 DVD)
Wotan, the chief of the gods, and Alberich, the lord of the Nibelungs, contended for dominion over the world. Wotan had the fortress Valhalla built for the gods' protection. The dwarf chose a different course, and acquired measureless might and wealth by a step the god would not have taken, for he gained the power to steal the gold guarded by the Rhine's daughters only by renouncing love. Now master of the "magic spell" inherent in the gold, he forged a "magic ring" for himself, while his brother Mime, the cunning smith, made him a cap of invisibility, the Tarnhelm. Having enslaved his fellow Nibelungs, he drove them to toil in the depths of the earth, mining its treasures which they piled up to enrich the lord of the underworld.

Dvorak: Rusalka (Blu-ray)
Dvorak's enchanting fairy tale of the water nymph Rusalka has been a signature role for Renee Fleming for the past 25 years. The Gramophone Classical Music Guide writes: "Renee Fleming's tender and heartwarming account of Rusalka's Song to the Moon reflects the fact that the role of the lovelorn water nymph, taken by her in a highly successful production at the MET in New York, has become one of her favourites". Here at last - in sumptuous HD - is that MET production by the late Gunther Schneider-Siemssen and directed by Otto Schenk. Yannick Nezet-Seguin conducts with "sensitivity and urgency" (.Financial Times) and the strong supporting cast includes Piotr Beczala "wonderful as the Prince, his tenor elegant and impassioned" [New York Times)....
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. ...

An all-star cast, led by Luciano Pavarotti at the height of his fame, includes Katia Ricciarelli (Amelia), Judith Blegen (Oscar), Bianca Berini (Ulrica) and Louis Quilico (Renato). The incomparable Metropolitan Opera Orchestra is conducted by Giuseppe Patane. This was an eye-catching and thought-provoking production in which Moshinsky staged the action in pre-revolutionary 1774 Boston. Extras include an interview with Luciano Pavarotti and James Levine. ...
Mozart, Nikolaus Harnoncourt: Die Entfuhrung Aus Dem Serail (2 DVD)
Critical acclaim for this superb co-production of Vienna's Staatsoper, the Wiener Fest-wochen and Brussels' Theatre de la Monnaie (Das Opernglas): "Directors Ursel and Karl-Ernst Herrmann, working with Nikolaus Harnoncourt, demonstrate that the Entfuhrung is fully on the level of Mozart's Da Ponte operas and Zauberfldte. In the harmony of staging and music, this is one of the most impressive Mozart performances Vienna has offered in a long time... Breaking with tradition, it seeks to fulfil his intentions as closely as possible."
