Pietro Mascagni: Nerone

Difficult to rate

(Edit) 17/02/2018

This is a concert performance without subtitles. As such it is quite good, but not what I had been looking forward to settling down to on a cold Saturday night!

Don Giovanni: Teatro Alla Scala (Daniel Barenboim)

A disappointing production

(Edit) 03/02/2017

The opera is, of course, superb but this was a disappointing production - barely more than a concert performance, + part of the idea of an opera is the visuals, surely? As for Barenboim's pace - well, you either love it or hate it; his slow tempos took the sparkle out of the music, his fast tempos lost the sparkle in the rush - well, I thought! The voices were wonderful but the talent was wasted.

Berlioz: La Damnation De Faust: Staatskapelle

Addictive!

(Edit) 06/12/2016

I started giving this performance a four star rating - but then I watched it again, + again, + again - I couldn't let it go! Fascinating + ever interesting production, excellent performances by all with Willard White totally outstanding.
