However, Anna and Rolando's performances are incredible. Each aria or duet is sung with such passion and fervour. Highlights are definitely Rolando's 'La Danza' which gets the audience clapping and up on their feet and Anna's 'Quando m'en vo', where she also surprises the audience. Watch the DVD and see what I mean. Reservations aside, this is a classy concert, excellently filmed and the enormous audience of over 12 000 people enjoy every minute. Conductor Marco Armiliato and the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper provide warm and sympathetic accompaniment to the star singers.
The sound and picture quality of the Blu-ray disc is generally top notch. Many cameras are used to view the concert, audience and arena from various perspectives. One of these cameras appears not to be in high definition but the drop in quality is so brief that it does not unduly effect the production. The close ups of the artists provide wonderful detail that is denied to the audience, even to those in the most expensive seats.
If you are hesitating whether or not to buy this disc I would urge you to give it a go. I don't think you will be disappointed. Similarities can be drawn between this concert and those with the 3 Tenors. In my view this concert has a more balanced structure and is much less contrived. There is so much to enjoy.
Recorded in July 2006 in the beautiful atmospheric setting of the updated Waldbühne amphitheatre, this is a wonderful concert of favourite music and songs by composers such as Lehar and Puccini. Anna Netrebko's beautiful soprano voice is luscious. Placido Domingo still sings powerfully and Rolando Villazón is energetic and passionate. The excellent Orchestra of Deutschen Oper Berlin is conducted by Marco Armiliato.
A booklet is included and there are subtitles in Italian, English, German, French, Spanish and Chinese.
Recommended unreservedly if you want an enchanting evening (nearly 2 hours) of wonderful varied music beautifully played and superbly sung. A feast for eyes and ears.
The content of the concert is ideal with a perfect blend of variety, in mood and in pace and where the orchestral items form ideal bridging moments and are also excellent in themselves.
In a concert of superlatives one can only really pick out the most memorable moments. The first memorable moment for me is Netrebko's dark and creamy `O mio babbino caro' but not for long! The very next number is Villazon's `Ah! Parais! Parais, aster de mon ciel' from Massenet's Le Mage and arguably the finest single track I have ever heard him sing.
Domingo is not to be outdone as he raises the crowd to their collective feet in `No puede ser' from La tabernera del Puerto. Netrebko entrances everyone with Lehar's `My lips' and amazingly fills the stadium when she leaves the microphones at the end of Musetta's `Quando men vo' and the crowd clap enthusiastically through Rossini's `La Danza', once the preserve of Pavarotti.
The orchestra is not to be outdone with a fine performance of Rossini's Semiramide Overture conducted by Marco Armiliato.
Finally all three singers combine to enormous applause as they share Verdi's `Libiamo ne lieti calici' and Lehar's `Dein ist meinganzes Herz' and the camera, scanning across the packed audience at the end, even manages to pick out Gustavo Dudamel on his feet and cheering fit to burst like so many others.
This entirely wonderful experience is captured in spectacular HD imaging and equally wide ranging sound presented in DTS-HD 5.1, DD 5.1 and stereo. The bonus is your own guaranteed pleasure! This has to be a 5 star issue and is truly phenomenal.
