NVC ARTS returned to Glyndebourne in 1994 for the opening of the beautiful, new opera house and a recording of an opera closely associated with Glyndebourne; Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro. Stephen Medcalf's production is complemented by John Gunter's sparsely furnished sets, offset by the rich greens, reds and blues in the scenery and costumes. A perfect Glyndebourne cast includes Gerald Finley and Alison Hagley who give touching performances of Figaro and Susanna. Andreas Schmidt is a strong and handsome Count Almaviva, Renée Fleming is a ravishing Countess and Marie-Ange Todorovitch is an irresistably love-sick Cherubino. Bernard Haitink draws polished playing from the London Philharmonic.

Mozart - Die Zauberflöte (Rolando Böer, Saimir Pirgu, Albina Shagimuratova) (2012) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 29,970 fps | 162 min | 8,82GB

From the Queen of the Night's vocal pyrotechnics to Papageno's chirpy birdsongs, The Magic Flute is one of Mozart's most charming and engaging operas. However, its fairytale surface conceals the mysteries of an initiation ritual and a multi-layered plot, packed with allegories to fire up the imagination. This celebrated production by artist William Kentridge joyfully bursts onto the stage of Teatro alla Scala in Milan, featuring the dazzling Russian coloratura Albina Shagimuratova as the Queen of the Night, and Italian bass Alex Esposito as Papageno, one of the most sought after artists of his generation.

Mozart - Cosi fan tutte (Iván Fischer, Miah Persson, Topi Lehtipuu) (2006) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 9322 kbps / 29,970 fps | 181 min | 12,6GB

Sub: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian

Mozart's genius in setting to music Da Ponte's comic play of love, infidelity and forgiveness marks Così fan tutte as one of the great works of art from the Age of Enlightenment. Nicholas Hytner's beautiful production for the Glyndebourne Festival in 2006, with its sure touch and theatrical know-how, lives up to its promise to be 'shockingly traditional', while Iván Fischer teases artful performances from an outstanding international cast of convincing young lovers.

Mozart - La Finta giardiniera (Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Eva Mei, Isabel Rey) (2006) [BluRay-rip]
Classical | BluRay-rip | AVC | MKV 1920x1080 (16:9) / 6215 kbps / 29,970 fps | 186 min | 10,0GB
Audio: Italian / DTS / 6ch / 48.0 KHz / 16 bits
Sub: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian

Nikolaus Harnoncourt presents his reading of “La Finta giardiniera”, a long-forgotten wonderfully tragicomic opera by the young Mozart. Almost a quarter of a century ago Harnoncourt presented his reading of the rediscovered work on CD, but in this version from the Zurich Opera, the great Mozart magician conducted a staged production for the first time, making the premiere an event in itself. The Zurich Opera gathered a star studded cast for this production: Italian soprano Eva Mei, Spanish soprano Isabel Rey, Romanian mezzo Liliana Nikiteanu and Austrian tenor Rudolf Schasching. Tobias Moretti, a popular Austrian actor with a musical background presented this, his second opera staging, to high praise from audience and critics alike. He sees this opera about mistaken identities and true love within a hierarchical order as a play on societal conditions at the onset of the enlightenment.

Salzburg Easter Festival presents boasting cast led by the star tenor Jonas Kaufmann (in his role debut as Turiddu) under the uber-conductor Christian Thielemann. As both a stage and film director, Philipp Stölzl reflects in his productions on how cinema usurped opera’s place in the popular imagination of Italy a century ago. Dividing the stage into six segments and mixing live video into the picture, he references the era of black-and-white movies.
