"Staged by acclaimed director Francesca Zambello and conducted by legendary Mozart authority Sir Charles Mackerras, this 2008 production of Don Giovanni never shies from the work's inherent passion and spectacle. Shadows infuse the set through much of the performance (while a massive Madonna, fastened to a central urban façade, presides overhead), but the ominous chiaroscuro eventually gives way to the full force of the ensemble and an unforgettable pyrotechnic climax. The international cast includes renowned British baritone Simon Keenlyside in the title role, as well as Russian soprano Marina Poplavskaya as Donna Anna and Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas as Don Ottavio."--Container

"La Traviata, one of the world's best-loved romantic operas, is performed under the starts on a floating, mirrored stage on Sydney Harbour, with the city, Opera House and Harbour Bridge acting as a stunning backdrop. Giuseppe Verdi's captivating music is performed with the orchestra concealed in a studio beneath the stage to ensure the finest amplified sound combines with the superlative singing of the cast. Emma Matthews thrills as the courtesan Violetta who, against her better judgement, falls in love with Alfredo, the dazzling Italian tenor Gianluca Terranova. But their relationship is doomed on two counts: Violetta's illness, and society's moral views of a courtesan's place within their world. With a colossal, glittering Swarovski chandelier illuminating the stage and fireworks embellishing the night-sky this is a La Traviata without equal"--Container

Carmen by Georges Bizet( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Eyre's stunning new production of Bizet's opera was the talk of the town when it was unveiled on New Year's Eve 2009. Elīna Garanča leads the cast as the iconic gypsy of the title--a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the toreador Escamillo (Teddy Tahu Rhodes) piques Carmen's interest. With dances created by star choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and conducted by rising maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin, this Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet's tale to thrilling life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax
