“The gaudiest event of the opera season in Europe, La Scala’s opener on Dec. 7 was a sublime new version of Tristan und Isolde directed by Patrice Chéreau under the baton of the house’s new principal guest conductor, Daniel Barenboim. ….. Mr. Barenboim, who knows this opera as well as anyone, drew rich, densely textured, multilayered sounds from his players.’ New York Times

“Here's a treat for Expressionism junkies...dominated by Theorin's extraordinary heroine, a Brunnhilde gone seriously to seed, a real tour de force of concentrated energy, vocal stamina and dramatic power, who occupies most of the very well-made film in close-up. Daniele Gatti gets marvellous sounds from the Vienna Philharmonic, all the score's fever and neurosis but also its tenderness... There's really not a weak link here.” Opera Now, Summer 2011 *****

“Elektra's Freudian creepiness constantly attracts sensationalist productions, so it's a pleasure to report just how fine this 2010 Salzburg staging is. Daniele Gatti's conducting is powerful enough, but never loses sight of the score's eerie lyricism and sombre glow, which Nikolaus Lehnhoff's staging embodies to atmospherically...Among Elektras on DVD this, along with Karl Böhm's historical performance, must rank among the best; and on Blu-ray it is superb.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2011 *****

Verdi: Don Carlos (Five-act French version)

Verdi: Don Carlos (Five-act French version)


Roberto Alagna (Carlos), Karita Mattila (Elisabetta), Thomas Hampson (Posa), Jose van Dam (Filippo II), Waltraud Meier (Eboli)

Orchestre de Paris & Chœur du Théâtre du Châtelet, Antonio Pappano (conductor), Luc Bondy (director)

Directed for video by YVES ANDRÉ HUBERT

Executive Producer BEATRICE DUPONT

Set in 16th-century France and Spain, Don Carlos tells of the political and amorous rivalry between King Philip II and his son, Don Carlos, over Elisabeth de Valois. Boasting an international cast in one of Verdi’s most popular operas, Luc Bondy’s moving production is the original French version restored to five acts.

Recorded live at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris, in March 1996 and re-mastered in high-definition from the original master tape.

Region-free NTSC (compatible with all modern PAL players)

Dolby Digital audio 5.0 surround & L-PCM stereo / 4:3

Subtitles: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish

“in virtually every respect, the Pappano DVD of the original French version is the one to have; there you sense the full value of Verdi’s original and preferable thoughts in an intelligent, finely sung and directed performance.” Gramophone Magazine

“Now only available on Blu-ray, this 1996 French-language version of the opera (Théâtre du Châtelet) captures Roberto Alagna in full bloom in his finest Verdi role, with Karita Mattila an elegant yet sensual Elisabetta and Waltraud Meier a coruscating but still supremely classy Eboli. Jose van Dam's Filippo has an unusual nobility and humanity, and Thomas Hampson's Posa (a role which he sang superbly only last year at Salzburg) is tremendously moving.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical
