  1. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I was thinking about great (or good) opera performances released on home video that never made their way onto a CD. I'd like to hear your opinions. Here's one such example; Gounod - Romeo et Juliette / Mackerras, Alagna, Vaduva, Royal Opera Covent Garden
  2. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I really like the Met production of Don Carlo with Alagna, Poplavskaya, Furlanetto, Keenlyside, and Halfvarson as the Grand Inquisitor. It is available as a HD production on their streaming platform but not on DVD/Bluray. The production is by Nicholas Hytner. There is a ROH production on a...
  3. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    This thread will have the goal of updating the 2015 Talk Classical Top Recommended Operas on CD and DVD since five years have passed from the last voting and many new members and opera fans have appeared in this forum. Also, the new load of Opera recordings, especially on Video format, make it...
  4. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    Would you like to see in the market any of the Wagner Rings conducted by Daniel Barenboim? Like a CD version of the Scala ring? A BBC or Universal release of the 2013 Proms concert? Still nostalgic of the Bayreuth 91/92? I'd like to be more precise. There is still no release of the Proms 2013...
  5. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I recently purchased the box set of Der Ring des Nibelungen on DVD, the one at the MET, 1990, conducted by Levine. I have a problem with the English subtitles on the third act of Die Walküre. For whatever reason, the english subtitles are all there on the disc, but not in the right places. The...
  6. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I'm completely new to opera and (hear a billion times before, I know) avoided it, focusing instead on instrumental music. However, I took the plunge and tried out the Met's recent production of Lulu on DVD and was amazed. Sorry to be base, but I think I might need to dip in slowly via lavish...
  7. Ballet
    I was looking for a general discussion/recommendation thread, but I can't see one. Ballet on video is frequently expensive compared to Opera! I think it would be a good idea to have a place to talk about it before we spend lots of money. I am a noob, so I hope lots of you will bring your...
  8. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I definitely do not want to get rid of the English Tosca but put it here to show all I have. Out of these, are there any I should get rid of? Perhaps one of the two Calls performances? Note that Tosca is not one of my favorite operas and I only got into it for the Act II DVD with Callas that...
  9. Recorded Music and Publications
    I've ripped audio from audio and video streams before never directly from a DVD. Recently, on top of a lengthy list of operas that have only been released in DVD format (Doctor Atomic, Alice In Wonderland, The Minotaur, Faustus, etc...), NEOS finally released the exact tracklists for...
  10. Opera
    Netflix and other sources have enabled me to see quite a few operas on DVD you're extremely unlikely to see live anywhere , among them, in no particular order : Giuseppe Gazzaniga : Don Giovanni Tenorio (The other Don Giovanni ! ) Siegfried Wagner : Der Kobold (The goblin ) Vaughan Williams...

    Hi I might have missed this but what are the alternatives to DVD for watching Opera? My fairly ancient DVD player is in its final years and I've only recently started watching opera on DVD. I don't want to start splashing out o lots of discs only to find them obsolete once my player goes...
  13. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    Is it worth paying more for a blu-ray recording of an opera? Often the same production of an opera is available as a DVD and as a blu-ray disc. Often the only difference is the price; the blu-ray disc is often dearer than the DVD. John Osborne.
  14. Opera
    I loaned out the DECCA DVD 1996 Houston Symphony with Bartoli, Dara, Gimenez, Corbelli and Pertusi over the weekend. This was my first Rossini opera to be viewed. The DVD did not come with a libretto, only a synopsis of the acts. The subtitles were available in English. I was impressed with...
  15. Opera
    Right now I'm on a huge Wagner binge and saw this documentary on DVD: Worth getting or not? Kinda love the whole thing as I nearly have the CD's of Solti's cycle.
  16. Opera
    Hi. I'm new here and this is my first post. I enjoy classical music, especially the baroque, but I've never listened to much opera. But I love Mozart, and a friend of mine is going to be singing the role of Cherubino in a university production of The Marriage of Figaro, and before going to her...
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    I was just wondering if the members purchase music video on Blu-Ray or DVD formats? And if so are you more likely to spend that money on operas or other classical music genres? Personally I find it hard to spend money on music Blu-Rays or DVDs. If I do buy something it is more likely to be...

    Hi, I'm actually not a listener of Opera... I prefer other kinds of classical music but I'm trying to give as a gift this opera and I would like to choose the best version there is. I'm thinking to buy a DVD and a CD. Could you please help me or at least inform me a little better of the...

    I'm showing La Boheme this semester during my college music history class (non-Music majors). I'm doing some research on the best DVD performances of La Boheme, but I can't find much written by musicians. I've heard the Pavarotti/Freni San Fransisco recording is one of the best. Does anyone have...
