Mozart: Die Entführung aus dem Serail [Gran Teatre del Liceu/Bolton] Blu-ray Review

Christoph Loy's production of Mozart's comic opera is long on vocalism and musicianship and short on sets. Still an enjoyable watch of a rarely performed masterpiece.

Rossini: La Gazza Ladra [Rossini Opera Festival] Blu-ray Review

A Rossini Festival performance in Pesaro, this rarely performed opera is well conducted with a vocal mixed bag. Definitely worth watching but with reservations.

Fellini, Jazz & Co. [Berliner Philharmoniker/Chailly] Blu-ray Review

Fellini, Jazz & Co. is a delightful hour and a half of varied musical fare from Shostakovich to Rota. The atmosphere of an outdoor concert is well captured by video and audio engineers.

Puccini: La Bohème [Opera Australia] Blu-ray Review

An enjoyable Opera Australia production of Puccini's La Boheme is presented. The young singers in the cast look their parts and deliver some fine singing.

Mozart: Die Zauberflöte [Teatro alla Scala] Blu-ray Review

A new and "updated" Die Zauberflöte by La Scala offers both visual and audio appeal. The youthful cast and clever special effects contribute to a very enjoyable watch.

Monteverdi: L’Incoronatione di Poppea [Norwegian National Opera] Blu-ray Review

L'Incoronazione di Poppea, a Monteverdi classic, is presented in an updated version by the Norwegian National Opera. A noble effort is undermined by the choices of color palette, staging, and sound recording.
