Bonus Talking Otello (20 minutes)
BD: DTS 5.1, PCM Stereo
“Otello is played by Aleksandrs Antonenko, who is tremendous in all respects. His Desdemona is the lovely Marina Poplavskaya...an expert in suffering. Carlos Àlvarez's Iago and Stephen Costello's Cassio are both nothing short of outstanding.”
28th January 2014
“Typically of Salzburg this performance is subjected to a spectacular staging in the Großes Festspielhaus...the Vienna Philharmonic under Muti play like demons in the pit...With her rich and powerful voice [Poplavskaya] makes a worthy partner for Antonenko”
