"I Masnadieri" backstage( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A rediscovery of a little known opera by Verdi, I Masnadieri , through the explanation of the director Gabriele Lavia and music director Nicola Luisotti for this production filmed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples in 2012. While I Masdanieri (literal translation: "The Robbers") is not listed among the great successes of the composer (La Traviata, Il trovatore and Rigoletto), this production at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples brings a new and modern light on this opera that Verdi composed quite young, during his years of hardship" The opera was created in 1847 in London but was poorly received by the public at the time
La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in Italian and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Puccini's evergreen paean to young love and the bohemian life has captivated generations of Met-goers through Franco Zeffirelli's iconic production. Movie theater audiences for the high-definition transmission of this staging got to see it with fresh eyes in a touching performance starring Angela Gheorghiu and Ramón Vargas as the frail seamstress and her poetic lover
La traviata by Giuseppe Verdi( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in Italian and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Traviata's sumptuous melodies and timeless depiction of doomed love have made the work a favorite of generations of operagoers. In his approach to this classic drama, director Willy Decker sets the action on a nearly bare stage, focusing the audience's full attention on the three main characters. As Violetta, the ailing courtesan desperate to escape her past, soprano Sonya Yoncheva offers a fearless and sympathetic performance from beginning to end. American tenor Michael Fabiano sings with ardent longing as her devoted lover Alfredo, delivering emotionally wrought phrases and ringing top notes. Thomas Hampson brings a burnished baritone to Germont, Alfredo's protective father whose stern demands spell disaster for the young couple. On the podium, maestro Nicola Luisotti leads an electric performance of Verdi's unforgettable score
Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Visual )

4 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mozart's sublime tragic comedy offers boundless scope for directors, and Kasper Holten has chosen it to follow his directorial debut of Eugene Onegin. He wanted to shift the emphasis from Don Giovanni's sex life into a darker place, showing Giovanni's womanizing as an attempt to stave off his own mortality. Each woman he seduces represents a life he could have had. Though it is a dark piece, Holten handles it with a light touch and works with a superb cast"--Publisher website
I masnadieri : melodramma tragico in four acts( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Italian and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Schiller's play The Robbers, I masnadieri was commissioned by Her Majesty's Theatre in London, where it was first performed in 1847, conducted by the composer. Once again Verdi was fascinated by the idea of giving musical expression to the eerie and earthy elements in his source. No wonder, then, that the work had many detractors among critics but was a popular success with its audiences

With its cast of hundreds, thrilling score, and sweeping tale of love and heroics in ancient Egypt, Verdi's Aida has long been a fixture on the stages of every major opera house in the world. For the 2018 revival of Sonja Frisell's monumental production of this grand masterpiece, the Met assembled a truly all-star cast. Soprano Anna Netrebko, one of her generation's most compelling artists, takes on the title role for the first time at the Met, going toe to toe with powerhouse mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili as her rival, the conniving princess Amneris. Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko is Radamès, the warrior that both women love, and Quinn Kelsey lends his robust baritone to Aida's father, the fallen king Amonasro. Maestro Nicola Luisotti is on the podium to conduct this epic performance, filmed as part of the Met's series of Live in HD cinema transmissions
Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi( )

1 edition published in 2019 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soprano Nadine Sierra took the Met by storm in 2015 when she made her debut as Gilda in Verdi's stirring tragedy Rigoletto. The 2018 Beverly Sills Award-winner reprised her winning portrayal in 2019, appearing in Michael Mayer's neon-bedecked staging, which updates the opera's action to Las Vegas in 1960. Alongside the American soprano, baritone Roberto Frontali delivered a commanding performance in title role, with tenor Vittorio Grigolo delighting audiences as the lascivious Duke. Nicola Luisotti was on the podium to lead an electrifying performance, which also featured bass Štefan Kocán and mezzo-soprano Ramona Zaharia as the murderous siblings Sparafucile and Maddalena
