Rossini: Semiramide | DVD | (31/12/2007)
from £50.20 | Saving you £-15.21 (-43.50%) | RRP
Bel canto can be translated as "pretty singing", and that definition seems tailor-made for this production, which offers grace, charm, and a fine-tuned sense of style in abundance to compensate for its limited psychological and emotional impact. The four principal singers are all specialists in the bel canto style and this opera has played a key role in building their substantial reputations. For its sweeping musical imagination and technical wizardry, Rossini's epic about royal assassination and misdirected lust in the ancient Babylonian Empire deserves a place in any inclusive opera collection, and we are not likely to have a better video recording of Semiramide in the foreseeable future. June Anderson has an attractive appearance and sounds exactly right in the music's florid melodic lines. But she is not dramatically compelling as the wicked queen who had her husband killed and fell in love with a man who turned out to be her long-lost son, Arsace. Marilyn Horne rose to the highest levels of international fame in the role of that conflicted son, and her presence alone would be enough to give this video classic status. Her voice was a bit past its prime when this performance was recorded in 1991, but still there is no other voice quite like it, no other voice so suited to Rossini's heroic mezzo roles. Samuel Ramey is a close bass counterpart to Anderson: great tone, agile florid singing, and a rather wooden but visually appealing stage presence. Sanford Olsen has a small role and sings it near perfectly. James Conlon gets excellent musical results; John Copley's staging is massive and static. --Joe McLellan, Amazon.com

Wagner-Der Ring Des Nibelunge | DVD | (02/07/2007)
from £95.13 | Saving you £-35.14 (-58.60%) | RRP
This legendary Bayreuth Festival production of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen directed by Harry Kupfer with designs by Hans Schavernoch and conducted by Daniel Barenboim is considered perhaps the finest video recording of these four operas ever made. For their innovative modernist staging Kupfer and his team turned away from the work's time of origin and located The Ring at a road of history a meeting-place of past present and future which sets the scene for the story's struggles of power and love. Barenboim's authoritative yet highly responsive reading of the immense score and the extraordinary performances of the cast help to make this a truly memorable Ring.

Filmed in crystal clear High Definition these DVDs have been designed to deliver the look and feel of a live performance to be watched and enjoyed again and again. Theatre on DVD - the new way to enjoy stage plays and bring set texts to life! Volpone has long been a popular choice as a set text for students. Written by Ben Jonson it was first produced in 1606. Billed as a comedy it also includes elements of tragedy and even animal fable (Volpone is Italian for 'fox'). In essence it's a dark satire on greed and lust and remains Jonson's most performed work. The action takes place in seventeenth-century Venice over the course of one day. The chief characters are Volpone a rich libertine and conman and Mosca his self-seeking servant. They cause chaos with an audacious fraud designed to part the city's wealthiest from their fortunes. The tale twists and turns as all the characters attempt to deceive each other until the whole scheme finally collapses with disastrous consequences for Volpone.

Aimed at the student teacher lecturer and theatre lover alike. Each production is highly polished using professional actors and directors at London's award-winning Greenwich theatre which specialises in productions for young people. Filmed in crystal clear High Definition these DVDs have been designed to deliver the look and feel of a live performance to be watched and enjoyed again and again. Theatre on DVD - the new way to enjoy stage plays and bring set texts to life! The Duchess of Malfi is a popular choice as a set text despite (or perhaps because of) the violence and horror of its later scenes. Generally considered to be the masterpiece of Jacobean playwright John Webster it was first produced in around 1613. It's a macabre tragedy based on actual events and tends to be loved or hated by critics - while consistently captivating audiences across the centuries. Set in Italy in the early fifteenth century it starts out as a love story with the Duchess marrying beneath her class. However her two brothers one cool and corrupt the other violent and warped have other ideas. With incredible plot twists along the way the play ends as an utter tragedy as the brothers take revenge on her destroying themselves in the process.
