    Default Future opera releases on DVD and Blu-ray

    Hey, I thought of another thread for a neglected area: the DVDs and blu-rays that are coming up.

    I'm excited about this, about to be released on 6/14/11 - Lully's Armide, by William Christie and Les Arts Florissants, on blu-ray:

    Yes I'm really looking forward to this one too!

    I'm also planning to get this:



    And I'm toying with the thought of the controversial "domestic abuse" Rusalka:

    I've seen someone talking about Orff's operas. Who was it? Aramis? Superhorn? Herkku? Il Penseroso?

    Good idea for a thread.

    I too would be interested in the Rusalka. Do you know when it gets released?

    According to the Opus Arte site, this production "takes Mussorgsky’s bare and monumental first version as its basis, while adding the final scene from the composer’s revision."

    http://www.opusarte.com/en/mussorgsk...v-blu-ray.html

    Hope that helps.
