  • Le nozze di Figaro

    "Here is a Figaro to put with the 1973 Glyndebourne production placed among the top five operatic DVDs." Gramophone

    Don Giovanni

    "This film powerfully captures the fiery essence of Francesco Zambello's production... Zambello makes Simon Keenlyside's harsh and diabolical Don Giovanni and Kyle Ketelsen's embittered Leporello a double-act of deadly dependency."
     BBC Music Magazine

    Die Zauberflöte

    "This production's slow journey from darkness into the light works well on the small screen, not least thanks to high-definition camera work and Sue Judd's inspired direction for television. The real magic, though, is supplied by the onstage cast... Simon Keenlyside's profoundly human, touchingly sympathetic view of Papageno deserves an Olivier Award." Classic FM
