    Looks like the Met is starting to release some of their back catalogue. Hope we'll get Nozze with Raimondi, Allen et al.

    The Lulu is currently unavailable on Amazon US, unless you get the big Levine 40th Anniversary set.

    Yes, but only from the Met shop, which is not a goer for those of us who live outside the US as they want you to RING to order it.

    Presto classical - seems cheap enough in NZ$, the postage is reasonable, and they are reliable. The DVD is all regions.

    They are also having an opera sale and I've stocked up on CDs that are not in my local library. Now I have to think about where to put the damned things.

    Looking at the back of my new Armide DVD



    I see that the label FRA is planning to release "L'Etoile" and "Atys" next. Isn't that exciting.

    Also the website is talking about a spectacular film of Contes D'Hoffmann next year, directed by Robert Carsen.

    Your DVD? Your DVD? You mean you didn't get this one on blu-ray???? Shame on you!

    Wow, Carsen, huh? I'm watching as we speak his spectacular staging of Les Boréades for Christie. Promising!

    L'Etoile and Atys are two of my favorite French operas.

    Good things coming out of France these days.

    What's there to be anguished about? Only one thing to do: BUY.

    Has anyone seen the recent DVD of Rossini's La Cenerentola from the Italian Dynamic label. It features Jose Maria Lo Monaco and Maxim Mironov?

    I really enjoy this opera and would like to add a decent DVD to my collection.

    Any other La Cenerentola recommendation?

    Also any thoughts on the new DVD and blue ray release of Janaceks Jenufa with Amanda Roocroft and Debrah Polaski from the Teatro Real in Madrid. It is released on the OpusArte label. Now I have a few DVDs from this house and the stage always looks massive and I think it tAkes away from the drama. Anyone seen it live or on DVD care to comment?

    Derailing slightly, but ah.
    I haven't seen that one, but it looks entertaining. Mironov isn't my favourite Don Ramiro, but he's good.
    My favourite version of Cenerentola is the 1981 filmed version with Frederica von Stade as Angelina and Francisco Araiza as Don Ramiro. A beautifully and very consistently cast production with beautiful sets and thoroughly amazing singing. There is also the recent Met one with Elina Garanca (who is good, but not quite agile enough for Angelina (also, I think her voice is a little too cold for the role (Flicka for the win!))) and Larry Brownlee (who is very good (on par with J-Flo in my opinion), but looks a bit off (short and somewhat plump)) which is rather good, but I don't really care for the production that much).

    Post comparing the Met production and the filmed one with Flicka.
    Review of the filmed 1981 version (get it!)

    There is also a production with Joyce DiDonato (whom I love. She's fantastic, and I believe the greatest Rossini mezzo today) and Juan Diego Flórez (who is also totally amazing. Greatest Rossini tenor of his generation) from ROH (I think, not sure). I have only seen clips of it, and the production is rather weird. But with those singers, it should be totally amazing anyway.

    If you want a version you can watch online, there's a production with the very fabulous Marlena Ernmann from the Royal Opera in Stockholm on the Youtubes. Clicky.

    Also, just to prove how fabulous she is, here's Marlena Ernmann singing Naqcui all'affanno and Non piú mesta, whilst losing her dress. Extra points if you speak Swedish:



    Can you tell I love this opera to bits? :P

    Yashin, welcome to the forum.
    We have a thread with DVD recommendations for 100 operas. It's one of the first three when you open the Opera on DVD and Blu-ray subforum (it's a sticky, always there on top of the page together with the other two sticky threads).
    Also, by consulting each composer's specific thread, you can find DVD reviews.
