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.

Bizet: Carmen

Gran Teatre del Liceu, 2011


STAGED BY: Calixto Bieito

In this prestigious production at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, world-famous and highly controversial stage director Calixto Bieito, admired for his raw and evocative stagings, sees in Carmen the embodiment of the mythical gypsy and touches upon sensitive issues such as racism, xenophobia and right-wing politics. Bieito conjures up a sensual and realistic atmosphere full of powerful symbolism.

An outstanding quartet of vocal stars, led by a “splendid and sensual” (El Periódico) Béatrice Uria-Monzon in the title role, delivers one of the most exciting Carmens in recent years: Roberto Alagna as Don José, Erwin Schrott as Escamillo and Marina Poplavskya as Micaëla.

Carlos Acosta focuses on the dramatic essentials of love, jealousy and revenge in his new production of Carmen. As well as choreographing the production, Acosta dances a lead role.

Liam Scarlett has used Lowell Liebermann’s thrilling Piano Concerto No.1 as the inspiration for his similarly audacious choreography in Viscera.

Debussy’s evocative score is the inspiration for Jerome Robbins’s Afternoon of a Faun, which depicts two ballet dancers as absorbed by their own reflections as they are attracted to each other.

George Balanchine’s Tchaikovsky pas de deux uses a fragment of music composed for the 1877 production of Swan Lake for an eight-minute display of ballet bravura and technique.

Extra Features: Darcey Bussell and Carlos Acosta, Carlos Acosta farewell speech, Introduction to Viscera, Introduction to Carmen.

Bizet: Carmen

Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, June 2011


Christine Rice (Carmen), Bryan Hymel (Don José), Aris Argiris (Escamillo) & Maija Kovalevska (Micaëla)

Royal Opera Chorus & Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Constantinos Carydis (conductor) & Francesca Zambello (stage director)

Julian Napier’s cinematic film of the Royal Opera’s production of Carmen – originally shot in 3D – is now made available on DVD and 2D Blu-ray. Arguably the world’s most popular opera, at the centre of this musical drama is the fiery Carmen, a gypsy woman whose love is as fleeting as it is passionate. Carmen has a devastating effect on the men she ensnares, and as the opera begins, she initiates an intense love affair with army corporal Don José. Later, when she abandons him for her new conquest, the bullfighter Escamillo, Don José’s jealousy turns to rage. This time, Carmen has pushed one suitor too far for her own good. In this characteristically vivid and vibrant stage production by Francesca Zambello, Seville is brought to life with ranks of soldiers, crowds of peasants, gypsies and bullfighters – as well as a magnificent horse, a donkey and even some chickens! Featuring the indomitable Bryan Hymel as Don José and Christine Rice in the title role, this compelling production of Bizet’s masterpiece has everything from intimate solos to rousing choruses, making it truly a musical event to remember.

Extra features: Carmen the opera and a Cast Gallery.

Running time: 155 minutes

Subtitles: EN/DE/FR/JAP/KO

Sound format: 2.0LPCM + 5.1(5.0) DTS

“The picture quality is unusually high, and this particular revival has been scrupulously rehearsed; the broadly traditional, picturesque and well-crafted period staging may add in irrelevant detail, but on this occasion everyone knows exactly what they’re doing all the time. The cast is excellent” Gramophone Magazine, September 2016
