The internationally renowned Mozart interpreter Sir Colin Davis conducts the chorus and orchestra of the Royal Opera House and a glittering cast in David McVicar's 2003 production of Mozart's last opera recorded, in sumptuous surround sound, live at Covent Garden.

'...a mellow warmth that was deeply satisfying. Simon Keenlyside...a triumph as quite the most engaging Papageno I have ever encountered, while the Tamino and Pamina of...Will Hartman and Dorothea Roschmann were stylish and musically satisfying. With an exceptional Queen of the Night, Diana Damrou, this is an evening no Mozart lover should miss...'

Acclaimed Italian conductor Maurizio Benini makes his Glyndebourne debut in Donizetti's intoxicating and deeply touching opera, whose fast-moving comic story unfolds the romantic rivalry between penniless farmhand and bumptious soldier, both vying for the love of Adina. Will the bogus Dr Dulcamara's potion - the elixir of love - help farmhand Nemorino win her heart? Peter Auty takes the role of Nemorino with Ekaterina Siurina as Adina. Recorded in High Definition and true surround sound.

"It is a beautifully achieved piece of work. ... Peter Auty's Nemorino is world-class in his vocal accomplishment and touching presentation of the character's plight. Alfredo Daza sounds exactly the right notes of God's gift to women bumptiousness and fundamental decency with his good-looking, healthy sounding Sergeant Belcore. Luciano Di Pasquale hits the spot as the fake potion seller Dulcamara, bringing colour and vivacity to his every appearance. The chorus are marvellous. Maurizio Benini maintains lively music-making in the pit." The Stage

Jonathan Kent's spectacular production of Purcell's huge semi-opera is joyous, imaginative and witty. Glyndebourne, with its intimate auditorium, provides the perfect setting for a drama which is partly spoken and partly sung. Based on an adaptation of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, the story is lavished with a brilliance that justifies this production's acclaim. Paul Brown's inventive designs, Kim Brandstrup's exquisite choreography, an excellent cast of actors and singers and outstanding playing by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under William Christie combine to make a seamless theatrical experience, here recorded in High Definition and true surround sound.

4 AV 5 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I SYDSVENSKAN

"En slitstark Covent Garden-uppsättning av "La Traviata" från 1994 har fått nytt liv med Renée Fleming i huvudrollen. Hennes Violetta börjar litet trevande, inte helt bekväm med första aktens koloraturer och Antonio Pappanos tempi. Men det tar sig när "The Beautiful Voice" - helt intakt vid 50 - får mer armbågsrum. Fleming tecknar en trotsig kameliadam som både kan klatscha en isstaty i ändan och dänga Bibeln i golvet i sin förtvivlan inför döden. Joseph Calleja (Alfredo) är inte en lika driven skådespelare, men hans ömsinta framtoning och kultiverade sång går till hjärtat. Innertrion fullbordas av Thomas Hampsons Germont Sr, en brutal patriark, som i vredesmod kastar sin son till golvet. Allt i la belle époque-kostym och regi av Richard Eyre."

4 AV 5 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I SYDSVENSKAN

"Tre enaktare = en triptyk. Puccini ville att "Manteln", "Syster Angelica" och "Gianni Schicchi" alltid skulle spelas tillsammans. Detta har sällan respekterats tidigare, men görs numera allt oftare. Den här produktionen, magnifikt anförd av Antonio Pappano, hade premiär på Covent Garden i höstas. I Richard Jones regi utspelar sig alla tre operorna vid mitten av förra seklet och "Syster Angelica" på ett barnsjukhus i stället för ett kloster. "Manteln" är, som oftast, den svaga länken. Men "Syster Angelica" kommer som ett mäktigt emotionellt crescendo, med kulmen i det gastkramande mötet mellan Angelica (Ermonela Jaho) och hennes moster (Anna Larsson).

Till efterrätt: muntert och väloljat ensemblespel i skälmkomedin "Gianni Schicchi"."

Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound, the outstanding singing of the all-star cast, led by a superb Sarah Connolly, and the vivid playing of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under the energising baton of William Christie reveal the colour and dramatic character of Handel's music in a most delightful manner.

Image Nozze di Figaro, Le
David McVicar's spellbinding production of Le nozze di Figaro is set in 1830s post-revolution France, where the inexorable unravelling of an old order has produced acute feelings of loss. In the relationship between Finley's suave, dashingly self-absorbed Count and Röschmann's passionately dignified Countess, which lies at the tragic heart of the opera, the sexy ease between a feisty Figaro (Erwin Schrott) and a sassy Susanna (Miah Persson) is starkly absent, the tenacious spark between Marcellina (Graciela Araya) and Bartolo (Jonathan Veira) suggesting what might be rekindled. The production is superbly complemented by the beauty of Paule Constable's lighting and Tanya McCallin's evocative sets. Antonio Pappano conducts (and accompanies the recitatives) with invigorating wit and emotional depth.
