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.

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".

"On the small screen the almost impressionstic play of colour is heightened to become an overwhelming experience ... With Johanna Meier's unusually powerful Isolde and Rene Kollo's resplendent expressive Tristan, a better cast is hardly imaginable today"
