5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return of a historic production 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase
I was delighted to make this discovery on Amazon for my understanding was that the DVD of this 1986 production of Don Carlo at the Salzburger Festpiele had been deleted from the current catalogue. Now this historic production, masterminded by Herbert von Karajan, is once again available. Bearing a less than flattering image of the maestro, the disc is cheaply packaged but marketed at an extroadinary low price (less than £4). There is a hastily produced booklet which does provide some valuable information but gives the recording date incorrectly as 1982. It is unfortunate that in some of the later stages of the DVD some of the picture quality is not perfect

It was always the order of the day that the autocratic Karajan should keep a tight control of his various projects. He is recorded on film at the begining of every act and receives massive applause at curtain call. For this particular project he chose the 1884 four act version of the opera which dispenses with the original first act set in the Forest of Fontainebleu where the opera's central protagonists first meet and immediately fall in love. There is much to admire in the production for Karajan has selected a fine teams of singers and both chorus and orchestra are excellent. This is a traditional production with fine sets and beautiful in period costumes. Apart from an efficient but visually rather disappointing auto-da-fe the staging is impressive but rather dark in act three

The central concentration of the production is the emphasis on good singing at the expense of acting, which in one case is nonexistent. Jose Carreras certainly looks the part and is the ideal Verdi ardent tenor. The hand gestures, which always seem so central to his performances, are here but come across as being in character.
