    I generally dislike stages that look like a building construction site, abandoned building/warehouse, bombed out site etc. taken out of context. The production above was a damn Regie. La Clemenza di Tito was about the clemency of a Roman emperor. OK, at a stretch, I could envisage adapting it for a modern day leader and his country. But what the hell does an empty abandoned building got to do with it? Don't give me the symbolism crap. It just doesn't work.

    Yeah, it's Regie. lol.
    There were parts that were definitely head-scratchers. The men wear skirts in the beginning and then have a costume change and go back to pants.
    This is still a great production though. Kasarova. Wow. She has amazing sfumatura. Roschmann is also outstanding here.
    Yeah, the stage looks like a rabbit warren/Roman catacombs/beehive, but the singing is really top-notch.

    Yes, and the only reason in many Regie productions that does not stop me from attending nor buying a copy of the DVD/Blu-ray.

    I didn't say anything about the staging. I was just commenting on how much Vesselina Kasarova looked like herself in that second video frame. Having just sat just a few metres from her (at the time the comment was made), I found it rather amusing.

    Also, I can't really comment on the staging. I haven't seen it. But I rather like symbolism.

    I just found out that Warner Classics has started a Youtube channel and are uploading whole performances of both ballets and operas.

    Highlights include:

    Der Rosenkavalier from ROH with Kiri Te Kanawa in the main role. Solti conducts.




    The Glyndebourne Comte Ory:




    The Glyndebourne Ermione with ACA:




    The Glyndebourne Albert Herring:




    The 1983 Glyndebourne Cenerentola:




    An Arena di Verona performance of Otello starring Vladimir Atlantov, Kiri Te Kanawa and Pietro Cappuccilli:





    Unfortunately, there are no English subtitles.

    I wonder if the production will be released given the CD is there. Performance should be excellent though I'm not sure about the staging.

    Have you got the CD yet HC? I like it, but I think I'll enjoy it more when I get the story more under my belt and work out who is playing who!

    I just found a Figaro from Salzburg '95 with Dorothea Röschmann, today's Contessa du jour, as Susanna. Other cast members include Bryn Terfel (Figaro), Susan Graham (Cherubino), Dima(!!) (Count), and Solveig Kringlebotn (Countess).

    I quite enjoyed this, alternate ending and all. Singing is overall very good, Montanari's orchestra is vivid. Some very fast tempi (that's probably the fastest Soave sia il vento I've ever heard), but it doesn't spoil the experience.
    Stage direction is brilliant at times. I love the asthma attack during Smanie implacabile, it's just so... in the music.
    But then I often fall for the Dorabellas, I find the character so relatable...
    Not to mention Daniel Behle's wonderfully awkward dancing. And the Per Pieta. Goodness!
