DON GIOVANNI: Director Sven-Eric Bechtolf pulls off a brilliant coup with the high aesthetics of this intrigue, a masterful parody of the “everything is possible” of our time - flanked by an ensemble of exquisite vocal talents.
Special Feature: Behind the scenes for the whole opera.
Available on DVD & Blu-ray.

DIE MEISTERSINGER VON NÜRNBERG: When he wrote Le Nozze di Figaro, Mozart created an unforgettable work about love and desire, about the primal force of uncontrollable passion. Director Sven-Eric Bechtolf presents this storm of emotions to the Salzburg Festival in the very model of an English stately home of the 1920s.
Special Feature: Digital Opera Guide.
Available on DVD & Blu-ray.

LE NOZZE DI FIGARO: This staging of Richard Wagner's "Meistersinger" burst upon the Salzburg Festival like a thunderclap. Stefan Herheim's idea of staging a midsummer night's dream as a fairytale narrative is enchanting.
Available on DVD, Blu-ray & 4k Blu-ray.
