Jonas Kaufmann. Gounod: Faust (Blu-ray)
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.

Mark Albrecht: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Die Zauberflote (Blu-ray)
Since its premiere in a tiny suburban theatre in Vienna, "Die Zauberflote" has delighted audiences young and old for over 200 years. Mozart's Singspiel seamlessly alternates seriousness and jollity, and combines philosophical ideas with a fairytale world of wondrous animals and magical musical instruments. Emanuel Schikaneder's original production was theatrically inventive, and this new interpretation from director Simon McBurney emulates that in fresh and current terms. Fusing music, technology and stagecraft, this exciting production gives Die Zauberflote a refreshing new treatment that is both thrilling and simple in its approach. Following an overwhelming success on stage. McBurney's unique production received five-star reviews in the Dutch press: "a feast for the eyes and the ears" (Het Parool) and "Delicious!" (Trouw).

Prokofiev: Romeo & Juliet
Today, when Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet h so popular in the theatre, it is curious to recall how comparatively little known were the ballet and its music in the 1950s. The first Russian staging was made by Leonid Lavrovsky at the Kirov Theatre, Leningrad, in 1940, five years after Prokofiev had completed the score. It was in 1956, when the Moscow Bolshoj Ballet arrived in London for Soviet ballet's ground-breaking first visit to the West that die emotional force of this production was seen, and profoundly affected our audiences. On 3 October in that year, the curtains of the Royal Opera House. Govern Garden, rose to reveal the motionless triptych of Romeo, Friar Laurence and Juliet (who was Galina Ulanova, Moscow's divinity). Even now, the sensation caused by that evening lingers on We were bowled over by the power of Muscovite dancing, by the radiance of Ulanova's presence, by the Torre of Prokofiev's score. Ironically, in the previous pear Frederick Ashton, The Royal Ballet's master choreographer, had staged his own response to this music in Copenhagen Tailored to die modest forces of the Royal Danish Bailer, this production had a clarity very different from the epic sweep of the Bolshoj version. Within two years of the Bolshoi's appearance, John Cranko, who had made his name as a young choreographer with The Royal Ballet mounted a version of Romeo for La Scala Milan, and this he revised and developed in 1962 when he became director of the Stuttgart Ballet.

Filmed live in Berlin, Anna Netrebko and Placido Domingo star in one of Verdi’s greatest operas, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim. Il Trovatore is without question one of Verdi’s most dramatic masterpieces – as well as one of his most melodic and including the irresistible ‘Anvil Chorus’ and the tenor showstopper ‘Di quella pira’.
Anna Netrebko makes her debut as Leonora, triumphing in a uniquely demanding role for a Verdi soprano and one she will sing again at the 2014 Salzburg Festival.
Adored for his legendary performances in the title role, Placido Domingo here sings the baritone role of the troubador’s arch-rival, the aristocratic Count di Luna. Celebrated film-maker Philipp Stolzl, well-known for his groundbreaking video collaborations with Rammstein and Madonna, directs his first Verdi opera, creating an extraordinarily powerful visual and visceral theatrical experience, unlike any other production of the opera.
The roles of the troubadour and the gypsy Azucena are taken by Uruguayan tenor Gaston Rivero and Russian mezzo-soprano Marina Prudenskaya....
