This unique DVD package includes excerpts from the operas by Verdi, Rossini and Ponchielli from the successful New Year’s Day Concert in the Teatro La Fenice in 2004. Eight years after a huge f re burned down the grand opera house of Venice in 1996 the reopening was celebrated with a series of amazing concerts. The highlight was certainly the final concert which was broadcasted live by the Italian state television channel RAI and is now eternalized on this DVD. During the programme of great opera choruses and arias, orchestral music and ballet scenes the audience can not only admire the delightful music but also the restored glorious interior decoration.

Throughout the world, international opera stages have recently discovered the sheer talent of Italian soprano Stefania Bonfadelli and tenor Roberto Aronica who both contribute to the concert’s distinctive atmosphere. Ballet stars Greta Hodgkinson and Roberto Bolle glamorously supported the event through their beautifully expressive dancing. Besides the amazing performances of the singers and dancers, Lorin Maazel’s delectable conducting is highly enjoyable and makes this concert an unforgettable event.
