"One of the most acclaimed Wagner productions of the postwar period, this electrifying, revolutionary Bayreuth staging of 'The flying Dutchman" catapulted the German director Harry Kupfer to international fame. Kupfer's psychologically acute production presents the entire story as a hallucination, in which Senta's yearning for the eternally wandering Dutchman sends her into a trance-like state."--Conteneur

"To celebrate Plácido Domingo's 75th birthday on January 21st, 2016, Sony Classical is releasing the anniversary album 'The Best of Plácido Domingo.' Specially selected from the great Spanish singer's vast discography of over 200 recordings, this 4-CD set spans almost half a century in the musical life of a prodigiously talented, much-loved and multi-Grammy Award-winning artist, who first launched his stage career as a baritone in his parents' zarzuela company in Mexico in 1957, made his operatic debut as a tenor in 1961, shot to international fame as a member of the chart-topping Three Tenors in 1990 and is still adding new roles to his repertoire after reverting to his baritone range in 2009, while also maintaining busy second and third careers as a conductor and opera company administrator. Equally at home in several languages and all sorts of musical styles, Domingo is heard here in a wide-ranging repertoire encompassing opera, musicals, folk, pop and crossover songs, Christmas and other sacred music, as well as a selection of popular Spanish and Latin American tunes recalling the singer's early days in Spain and Mexico." --

Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero
