This product has absolutely no rivals.
The three unique productions were the fruit of Andrea Andermann’s vision to perform and film Verdi's La Traviata and Rigoletto, and Puccini's Tosca at the actual places and hours of the day specified in the libretti, namely in Paris, Mantua and Rome respectively.
The singers were acting and singing live on location while conductor Zubin Mehta and the orchestra performed miles away in a studio, connected to the singers only by monitors and hidden speakers.
The project involved some of the most complex audio-visual operations ever attempted. The results garnered prestigious Emmy, Prix d’Italia and Bafta awards and remain unsurpassed milestones for the genre of operatic film.
The star casts include Plácido Domingo, Julia Novikova, Vittorio Grigolo, Ruggero Raimondi, Catherine Malfitano, José Cura and Eteri Gvazava. Cinematography by Vittorio Storaro.
The performances are delivered in luxurious boxed sets as Blu-ray (3 discs) or DVD (4 discs) including rich bonus material.The accompanying 160-page book provides background information on the productions, plus a lavish and arty photo collection.
