The Metropolitan Opera has a strong revival of their 2011 Don Giovanni currently running as one of their HD Live productions.
A truly enjoyable, lighthearted rendering of the Cinderella fairytale, this recent Metropolitan Opera production pulls out all of its vocal stops and then some. Humdrum sets aside, the performance values carry the day and ensure much viewing pleasure, beginning with the drop-dead gorgeous star, mezzo-soprano, Elina Garanča.
The Metropolitan Opera gives us a “Live in HD” broadcast Blu-ray of Donizetti’s masterpiece. Some strange stage business aside, there is plenty of strong singing and music-making going on, certainly enough to recommend this one to all opera-lovers.
