classical music: glyndebourne
Opus Arte, 2006
I have always adored Handel's music but when I first saw this production at Glyndebourne, it was a real revelation. An extraordinarily beautiful staging with real drama, but also full of humour and a great deal of dancing - Bollywood style! David McVicar's take on Giulio Cesare left me completely stunned - I have never felt so many different emotions during one performance - it made me both laugh and cry in equal measure. In one scene you are ...
Claudio Monteverdi: L'incoronazione di Poppea
Danielle de Niese

Returning to the opera house where she sang her sensational Cleopatra in Handel's Giulio Cesare, Danielle performs the title role in Monteverdi's great opera of lust and power, in Robert Carsen's new, modern-dress staging. De Niese is perfectly cast as the beautiful and seductive Poppea who ruthlessly grabs power as Nero's lover but, in this production, is doomed from the moment of her ...

Mozart - Le nozze di Figaro
Kultur Video, 2003
Mozart's comedy presents a scenario whose society overcomes its differences - social, sexual, generational - through the exercise of the humane values of mutual understanding, respect and forgiveness.
Lyric fairy tale in three acts: Libretto by Jaroslav Kvapil after Friedrich Heinrich Carl de la Motte Fouque's tale Undine. Dvorak's opera Rusalka reaches extraordinary heights of melodic eloquence. Rusalka is also the most consciously 'through-composed' of Dvorak's operas but this does not prevent Czech opera's most famous aria the ineffably beautiful 'Song to the Moon', being frequently extracted from the score and sung as a stand alone aria. ...

Gershwin - Porgy and Bess / White · Haymon · Blackwell · Baker · LPO · Sir Simon Rattle
EMI Classics, 1997
An uncut Porgy & Bess may well be too long in the theater. On CD, though, you can play one act at a time, letting Gershwin's wide-eyed, inexhaustibly inventive score run its course at leisure in the comforts of your rumpus room. Some listeners might find Sir Simon Rattle's tempos on the draggy side, but he's got Gershwin's syncopated idiom down cold. Similarly, the singers fuse Gershwin's prodigious musical demands with effortless, ...
