This review is from: The Opera Gala: Live from Baden-Baden [DVD]   (DVD)
'The opera gala' is an enchanting live concert of popular arias, duets and quartets performed in the Festspielhaus, Baden-Baden in 2007. Anna Netrebko is of course a fantastic soprano and she also performed some dazzling dancing.
Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas was in good voice and confident. Latvian mezzo soprano Elina Garan'a sang richly and beautifully. She excelled in 'Mon Coeur s'ouvre à ta voix' from 'Samson and Dalila' by Saint-SaŽns. Suave French Baritone Ludovic Tézier made up the star quartet.
Marco Amiliato is an excellent conductor, and was sympathetically in total control of the orchestra.
This DVD provides over 2 hours of delightful musical and visual enjoyment. Highly recommended.
