    Quoting: This is not a Traviata for everyone--I know people who would be hollering about the cut of the ballet, and other people who would disparage the lack of pretty costumes--but as a night out at the theater it is a powerful experience. Not to be missed.

    Oper Graz - hm, they are pretty good, orchestra is fine. But the best part are their productions!

    According to Decca's web site, a DVD of Humperdinck's Die Königskinder, with Jonas Kaufmann in the role of the Prince, is due out early next year! (Well, at least in Europe -- who knows when we'll see it on this side of the pond?) This is probably the Zürich Opera production with Isabel Rey as the Goose Girl.

    Interesting............

    Someone forgot to tell the costume designer that we are doing La Forza and not La fanciulla del West

    Looks like another must have, Kultur Video has gone back to original tapes and remastered in widescreen 1:78 format with improved picture and sound, number of DVDs expands to 11 (previous set only 7 DVDs)..........make sure you are getting new Kultur release and not older versions out there

    In my buy basket, under $100 new at Amazon USA
    Some great prices on this new remastered set at Amazon USA, $64 new at seller blowitouttahere

    It will soon be mine

    Just for the record, I wasn't particularly pleased either by what I saw in the excerpt.

    Wait...........
    trip to DG website answers my question that about 3 weeks after 2 DVD release a 1 disc blu ray will be released.
    Keep your powder dry my friends
    Almost time to pull the trigger........Presto UK has the blu ray version available 11/14/2011 for $26
    (not the absurd $36 for DVD version at Amazon USA)

    Amazon USA has no ship date or price yet for blu ray version...........

    Like the Netrebko "puritani" this performance should look great on blu ray which captures every detail of these ornate costumes, love D'arcangelo's swagger and delivery here......what a commanding stage presence

    Netrebko quite spectacular also, that amber tone voice is velvet smooth, looks like we have a winner!

    If it's from Zurich, I suppose it's safe to assume it doesn't have real geese?
