Image Nutcracker (BLU-RAY)
This production from the Vienna State Opera presents The Nutcracker ballet in Nureyev's final choreography, the 1985 Paris version. The critic Clive Barnes set the tone by remarking: 'No version of The Nutcracker that we have ever seen has been more potently dramatic few have displayed so sharp an imprint of personal style.' It is staged by Nureyev's pupil and protege Manuel Legris of the Wiener Staatsballett.

Image Tosca (Blu-ray)
Premiered in 1900 with huge success, Puccini’s “melodramma” Tosca is a political thriller with a heart-breaking love story. With his gripping opening scene, stage director Michael Sturminger sets the tone for a cinematic, richly detailed Tosca which is set in the Mafiosi world of modern day Rome and which is “the perfect thriller … reminiscent of Scorsese’s ‘Goodfellas’” (Kleine Zeitung), a “film noir” (FAZ). In this production soprano Anja Harteros is “a phenomenal Tosca!” (Kurier), “unparalleled in the world” (Der Standard) and Aleksandrs Antonenko is “a Cavaradossi of superlatives” (Kieler Nachrichten). The Staatskapelle Dresden under Christian Thielemann „show again that he is not only a master of German repertoire but also strikes the right note in Italian repertoire.“ (Focus)

Image Swan Lake (DVD)
The impossible love between a human prince and a swan princess, tragic fates, the constant opposition between imagination and reality: these are the core elements of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. Profoundly classical, Valery Kovtun’s version for the Ballet of the National Opera of Ukraine is an homage to Tchaikovsky’s talent, but also to Marius Petipa’s timeless heritage. As in the original libretto, this Swan Lake ends with the two main character’s death, drowned into the lake’s tears. But evil is overpowered by love, and in the final apotheosis, Odette and Siegfried are forever united in a world of perfect harmony. A first-class company, the Ballet Company of the National Opera of Ukraine has toured all around the world: from the United States to Europe and Asia. Thanks to its rich classical heritage, the Company has managed to win the hearts of its audience thanks to its amazing technique and artistic maestria, and as in every good dance company, the whole is equal to the sum of its parts. The Company has also, over the years, established itself as a unique talent pool, that has nurtured first class dancers such as Iana Salenko (Staatsballet Berlin), Alina Cojocaru (Royal Ballet), Maxim Beloserkovsky and Irina Dvorovenko (American Ballet Theater); and the young gifted dancers that make the Ballet’s reputation ensure the preservation of the classical heritage of this historical and world-renowned company.

Coro Lirico Marchigiano "V. Bellini"
Carlo Montanaro, conductor
Dante Ferretti, director

Choreography - Gheorghe Iancu

This new production of Carmen marks the debut in opera direction of award-winning Art Director and Macerata native Dante Ferretti. Amongst his achievements are nine nominations and two Academy awards (Best Achievement in Art Direction 2007, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street; 2004, The Aviator)

Eschewing the glamour and extravagance of Hollywood, Ferretti here has devised a minimalist set drawing from Francoist Spain during the 1930s-40s. A touch of Italian Neorealism is also clearly recognizable.

"The most relevant element on stage must be the emotional reaction stirred by the story . . . What strikes most about the Sferisterio stage is the emptiness that leaves room for imagination" Ferretti

"...a highly "musical" and talented cast . . . With Irina Lungu a sexier and more assertive Micaëla than usually expected and Nino Surguladze vocally perfect"

Kammerakademie Potsdam

Emmanuel Pahud, principal flutist of the Berliner Philharmoniker, celebrates the 300th birthday of Frederick the Great with a concert recorded in the historic Royal Theater of the Neues Palais Potsdam, one of the architectural gems within the world-heritage palace ensemble of Sanssouci built by the Prussian king.

Trevor Pinnock is one of the pioneers of the modern revival of early music performance and he appears as a guest conductor with many of the world's leading symphony orchestras.

Wiener Philharmoniker Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks / Leonard Bernstein

Soloists: Blegen, Fassbaender, Ahnsjö, Sotin

Bernstein delivered a powerful and now legendary live performance of Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 135 - transcribed for String Orchestra and performed by the Vienna Philharmonic. For the first time ever this performance is now being released on DVD and Blu-ray.

Another definitive Bernstein performance debuting now on both mediums is the enigmatic maestro's reading of Haydn's Missa in tempore belli, filmed live in concert at Ottobeuren in 1984, using to maximum effect the deeply impressive setting of the monastery's magnificent Baroque basilica.

The public performance of opus 135 was acclaimed by the press: "Since Leonard Bernstein is the number one conductor today, the only one who can let the Vienna Philharmonic play the way they would love to sound all the time, he and the orchestra wanted to play a difficult Beethoven Quartet in a monster setting. They succeeded, and it was an exciting work, unlike anything one ever hears."

Image Journey of a lifetime
Sir Georg Solti was one of the greatest recording artists who ever lived - not only his still unequalled record of 31 Grammys® attests to that: the present documentary illluminates the life and work of Sir Georg Solti on the 100th anniversary of his birth. We follow the Hungarian-Jewish conductor's career: as Toscanini's assistant at the Salzburg Festival, as music director in Munich and Frankfurt after the war, achieving worldwide fame with his legendary Vienna Philharmonic recording of Wagner's Ring cycle. It was as the long-serving music director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra that Solti became an international star of classical music, one whose musical ardour and perfectionism remain unsurpassed to this day.

Conductor: Roberto Paternostro

Artists: Linda Watson, Jukka Rasilainen, Leonid Zakhozhaev, Adrew Shore, Stig Andersen, Marion Ammann

Is it really possible to stage Wagner's Ring on a single day? The composer's great-granddaughter, Katharina Wagner, who now runs the Bayreuth Festival, was keen to stage Cord Garben's abridged version of the cycle at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, but in the event things turned out rather differently. When she and her team arrived at the Colón, they found that the rehearsal conditions were not what they were expecting, and so she decided that the task should be entrusted to a different director. Valentina Carrasco took over at short notice and together with the singers and the set and costume designers she staged the Ring in a seven-hour version never previously seen - and all on a single day! The present documentary provides a thrilling and visually memorable account of the long journey taken by this version from its inception to the first night.

Image Paths Through the Labyrinth
A film by Anna Schmidt

Even at over 80 Krzysztof Penderecki is still an unflinching and active composer and conductor. Director Anna Schmidt followed Penderecki's paths for a year-in the process interviewing such world-famous artists as Anne-Sophie Mutter, Julian Rachlin and Janine Jansen as well as Jonny Greenwood ("Radiohead") and legendary film director Andrzej Wajda.

As a result, Paths Through the Labyrinth has become a comprehensive "work in progress" documentary, accompanying Penderecki from Kraków to Munich, from Vienna to Leipzig, and to his country estate in Luslawice. Throughout, the composer reflects on his beginnings, the turning points in his life and the world of his ideas.

Thoughts, dialogues, encounters and extracts from several famous Penderecki compositions coalesce into a fascinating, multi-layered portrayal of one of today's most influential musicians.

Image Leonard Bernstein: Larger Than Life (BD)
Leonard Bernstein was America’s musical ambassador to the world. This fascinating documentary shows why Bernstein was one of the most influential classical musicians of the last century. He was an inspirational teacher, a brilliant conductor, a fine composer, and an accomplished pianist. In his role as an educator, he found and fascinated an even larger audience of young listeners on television shows such as Omnibus and Young People’s Concerts. As a composer (West Side Story, On the Town etc.) he could bridge gaps and break down barriers in an extraordinarily skilful and yet accessible manner, reaching a large audience worldwide, way beyond classical music.

The film includes interviews with Leonard Bernstein’s children, Jamie, Alexander and Nina Bernstein, Gustavo Dudamel, Stephen Sondheim, Kent Nagano, Marin Alsop, Sir Peter Jonas, Christoph Eschenbach, Norman Lebrecht, members of the Vienna Philharmonics, Craig Urquhart, and many others.

STAGED BY: Ettore Scola

Puccini's masterpiece La Bohème is by far the most represented opera in the world. At the famous Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago, where Puccini composed his main operas, La Bohème is directed by one of Italy’s greatest film directors: Ettore Scola, the creator of a high number of award-winning seminal films. As he explains in the programme notes, as soon as he was approached to stage La Bohème he had to fight hard to resist the temptation to give life to his “revolutionary” ideas; in the end, he decided for a traditionallooking, rich, grandiose and detailed Bohème. Together with the exceptional cast of Daniela Dessì, Fabio Armiliato, Alessandro Luongo, Marco Spotti and Alida Berti, this production makes for an incomparable great performance.
