Renée Fleming explores the cultural riches of St Petersburg, and the role that music played in its unique history. She is joined by Russian baritone star Dmitri Hvorostovsky, for a three-part programme of opera excerpts by Tchaikovsky and Verdi, and songs by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Medtner.

The 90-minute film is presented by Renée Fleming herself, as she takes the viewer on a journey through the principal sights and musical history of ‘The Venice of the North’.

All repertoire is performedn in the opulent theatres of the Winter Palace, the Yusopov Palace and the magnificent palace of Peterhof.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful musical trip to St. Petersburg! 31 Dec 2013

As I am a big fan of Renee Fleming and Dmitri Hvorostovsky, this DVD was a must-have for me. But it turned out to be beyond my expectations.

I loved the arias, songs and duets, performed superb by both of the singers. My favorite pieces were: the final duet of Eugene Onegin, the duets from Simon Boccanegra and Il Trovatore, Don Juan’s Serenade (a song composed by Tchaikovsky) and Natasha’s aria (Pochudilis mne budto golosa) from Tchaikovsky’s Oprichnik. The arias, songs and duets are performed in three different palaces all in and around St.Petersburg, giving a fairytale touch to the musical pieces.

Apart from the arias, songs and duets performed, Renee Fleming tours us through St.Petersburg and gives us informations about the city. I truly enjoyed this part and I learned a lot of things about St.Petersburg!

In conclusion, I would recommend this DVD to every opera fan and I would definitely watch it again and again!

Have not seen all the dvd yet but the parts I have watched are excellent. Apart from the singing the aspects of he palaces and the city itself are amazing. I want to go there and see it for myself. Hvorostovsky and Fleming sing brilliantly together.
