Notes & Reviews:

This is a BLU-RAY disc and it will not play on a standard DVD player. A standard DVD is available as BOA 0990. "This performance seems to get to the heart of arguably Mozart's greatest opera more successfully than almost any other production of the composer's stage works I've seen in the last two or three years. As day turns to night and the characters leave the house to resolve their disputes in Tanya McCallin's verdant garden set, the performance takes on a warm glow; it's just so emotional, so involving, so poignant. And I just can't remember thinking that an opera production was quite this beautiful before or since this one... Shot in high definition and in surround sound, this is a luxury package and one that should be purchased and treasured by every opera lover." -MusicalCriticism.com

"This sexy, raunchy, romp of an opera is a triumph. Director David McVicar has searched for the essence of the composer and found it; fun filled, sensitive, romantic and serious by turns, all reflected in this production.This is a 'Must See' opera! ...You'll regret it if you don't!" -Musical Opinion

"Can be recommended without reservation... The elegance and simplicity of Tanya McCallin's traditional sets and costumes practically take your breath away, particularly in the Countess' and Count's rooms in acts II and III... Antonio Pappano leads the Royal Opera Chorus and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in a reading that is beautifully paced and lovingly shaped and balanced. This splendid version of the opera would make a fine introduction for newcomers and is likely to delight those who already know and love it." -All Music Guide
