Edita Gruberova (Lucia), Alfredo Kraus (Edgardo), Renato Bruson (Enrico Ashton), Robert Lloyd (Raimondo Bidebent), Kathleen Kuhlmann (Alisa), Bruno Lazzeretti (Normanno) & Bonaventura Bottone (Lord Arturo Bucklaw)

Ambrosian Opera Chorus & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Nicola Rescigno

Edita Gruberova is an undisputed queen of bel canto opera. When this recording first appeared, Gramophone praised her Lucia for combining the best qualities of such legendary interpreters as Joan Sutherland, Maria Callas and Toti dal Monte. She is partnered by Alfredo Kraus, one of the great tenor stylists of the 20th century, Renato Bruson, a baritone exceptional for his amalgam of power and elegance, and Nicola Rescigno, a conductor deeply versed in the Italian operatic tradition.

Two spectacular gala concerts from the stage of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, are brought together here in their unforgettable glory. In the 1993 Winter Gala, world-leading singers (including Plácido Domingo, Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Kiri Te Kanawa) and dancers (including Darcey Bussell, Lesley

Collier, and Irek Mukhamedov) celebrate the music of Tchaikovsky, in highlights from such opera and ballet favourites as The Queen of Spades and Eugene Onegin, The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty. In the famously glittering 1996 gala concert, Domingo is joined by a cast of opera stars including Angela

Gheorghiu, Roberto Alagna and Susan Graham. Asher Fisch conducts this programme of great opera arias by composers including Bizet, Massenet, Gounod, Mozart and Donizetti.

These classic recordings are preserved in their original Standard Definition and 4:3 picture format, capturing The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet at a memorable period in their long history.

Ambrosian Opera Chorus & Philharmonia Orchestra, Riccardo Muti

Verdi holds a special place in Riccardo Muti’s heart. Here he conducts the explosive opera whose nostalgic chorus, ‘Va, pensiero’, turned the composer into a hero of the Risorgimento, the movement for the unification of Italy. In the title role of the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, Matteo Manuguerra is a baritone in the great tradition, while Renato Scotto brings both formidable temperament and bel canto delicacy to Abigaille.

Wagner: Parsifal

Wagner: Parsifal

Recorded live at the Royal Opera House


Simon O’Neill (Parsifal), Angela Denoke (Kundry / Voice from Above), René Pape (Gurnemanz), Gerald Finley (Amfortas), Willard W. White (Klingsor) & Robert Lloyd (Titurel)

Royal Opera Chorus & Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Antonio Pappano (conductor) & Stephen Langridge (director)

Wagner’s last opera Parsifal is a work of intense humanity. It narrates the story of a troubled community ultimately healed through one man’s realization of the power of compassion. Created in honour of the bicentenary of Wagner’s birth, Stephen Langridge’s new production, with designs by Alison Chitty, distils with ‘intellectual fibre and visual eloquence’ (Financial Times) the timeless and universal nature of the Parsifal story. The cast includes great Wagnerian tenor Simon O’Neill in the title role. René Pape as Gurnemanz is ‘immaculate’ (Guardian), Gerald Finley as Amfortas is ‘compelling’ (Telegraph) and Angela Denoke as Kundry is ‘dramatically electrifying’ (Telegraph). The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House under Royal Opera Music Director Antonio Pappano give a ravishing rendition of Wagner’s sublime score. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound.

Running time: 281 minutes

Subtitles: EN/FR/DE/JP/KO

Sound format: 2.0LPCM + 5.1(5.0) DTS

“Amfortas [is] sung and acted with the greatest distinction by Gerald Finley...Denoke is always striking as Kundry but doesn't really have a large enough voice for the demanding role. The minor roles are well taken. And the orchestra covers itself with glory, tirelessly magnificent for all 270 minutes.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2015 **

“this is a well-thought-through production whose ideas don’t fight against the music...In musical terms, too, this is a simply excellent performance...[Gurnemanz] is a role that René Pape might have been born to sing...[Finley] is similarly balm to the ears as Amfortas...[Denoke] seizes every dramatic opportunity which the role gives her.” MusicWeb International, 9th December 2014

Giuseppe Verdi’s late opera Don Carlo delivers all the big topics while Ferdinand Wögerbauer’s ultra-simple décor provides a spartan counterpoint to the dramatic action.

Ambrosian Opera Chorus & New Philharmonia Orchestra, Bruno Bartoletti

“The New Philharmonia Orchestra sparkles and shimmers under the baton of Bruno Bartoletti in this recording with Montserrat Caballé in the title role. She treats us to some of the most expressive Puccini singing I've ever heard in her Act Four aria, Sola, perduta, abbandonata, and she is partnered by Plácido Domingo, magnificently classy as the Chevalier des Grieux...this recording is a treasure.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, July 2014

“Colin Davis treats this opera with the reverence that it deserves and inspires magnificent performances from José Cura and Olga Borodina in the title roles, with sterling support from Egils Silins, Jean-Philippe Lafont, and Robert Lloyd in the smaller roles. The London Symphony Orchestra plays with suitably wanton abandon in the Act Three Bacchanale.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical

Roberto Alagna (Roméo), Leontina Vaduva (Juliette), Sarah Walker (Gertrude), Robert Lloyd (Frère Laurence), Peter Sidhom (Capulet), Paul Charles Clarke (Tybalt), David Wilson-Johnson (Le Prince), Jeremy White (Gregorio), François Le Roux (Mercutio), Anne Maria Panzarella (Stéphano), Richard Halton (Pâris)

The Royal Opera Chorus & The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Charles Mackerras (conductor) & Nicolas Joël (stage director)

Sir Charles Mackerras teases the romantic beauty from Gounod’s score, which has been much admired and performed since its first performance, at the Théâtre Lyrique, Paris, in 1867. In this 1994 recording, the youthful Roberto Alagna as Roméo, and Leontina Vaduva as the unattainable Juliette, lead an excellent cast in a touching portrayal of this story of impossible love, based on the play by William Shakespeare.

Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London on 15th & 17th November 1994.

PICTURE FORMAT: 4:3
LENGTH: 176 Mins
SOUND: 2.0 DOLBY DIGITAL

“Alagna is the fascinating, never failing, special, real tenor thing - the heir apparent to the two. He delivers the goods.” The Guardian

“They are a Romeo and Juliet who look as if they were born to play their roles” Financial Times

“Leontina Vaduva is a touching Juliette… There's real passion in her Tomb aria… Roméo is the role that catapulted tenor Roberto Alagna into a celebrity. Best of all is Charles Mackerras conducting in the pit.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2008 ****
