I read this book in two sittings. I could barely put it down. Can't wait for the next in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars An operatic tour de force!, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This must be the best Trovotore ever. Four of the best singers in the world in the Met at the same time. Radvonovsky's Leonora is soaring and sublime, Hvorostovsy's di Luna is wonderful, powerful and moody with long legato passages. Zajick's Azucena is a force to reckoned with. The voice and the character are perfect. The scenery is on a turntable with makes scene changes fast and untroubled. I watch this recording again and again.I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I'd been there!, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful concert performed by two of Russia's best operatic singers. Lots of Verdi to celebrate his bicentenery, but other composers feature to make this a varied and enjoyable concert.The singing is superb from beginning to end. Lovely encores too with the crowd in Red Square joining in. Lovely!

This gothic feeling ballet is great fun, but has it's darker side. The costumes are wonderful and the dancing superb. The ending is unexpected too. Lovely to watch, and,of course, wonderful music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this!, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This ballet has been a favourite of mine for some time. I have the original Adam Cooper version. This new version with Richard Winsor and Dominic North is crisper, the camera and lighting work more advantageous to the performance. The choreoraphy has evolved quite a bit, the swan is more aggressive at first, which makes the following scenes more poignant. Richard Winsor's dancing is mesmeric. If you enjoy dance, buy this recording.
