Notes & Reviews:

The greatest names in opera take to the stage for these galas from three musical centers that have come to stand as symbols of rebirth - Vienna, Berlin and Dresden. Vienna celebrates the 50th anniversary of the State Opera House's reopening with music of humanity and rejoicing from Rosenkavalier to Fidelio, international stars fill the Dresden night with the sounds of operatic favourites, and Claudio Abbado conducts a New Year's Eve tribute to Verdi in Berlin, closing with the life-affirming fugue that brings the curtain down on the master's last opera, Falstaff.
