Live From Red Square Moscow - Arias & Duets by Tchaikovsky, Puccini, Verdi, Giordano et al. / Anna Netrebko; Dmitri Hvorostovsky [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Two of the biggest names in opera join forces for a live performance from historic Red Square in the heart of Moscow captured in stunning sound and vision with 18 high definition cameras and 5.1 cinema surround sound.

Recorded at a superb live concert on 19 June 2013, Anna Netrebko an Dmitri Hvorostovsky return to their native Russia, singing a brilliant program of popular arias and duets from some of the world's best-loved operas, including Tosca, Eugene Onegin an celebrating Verdis bicentenary, Il Trovatore.

They are accompanied by Russias State Academic Symphony Orchestra "Evgeny Svetlanov" and the huge forces of the Academic Grand Choir Master of Choral Singing, under the baton of Constantine Orbelian.

Every detail of the once-in-a-lifetime event is faithfully capture by director Frank Hof, whose work includes the memorable Anna Netrebko, Placido Domingo and Ronaldo Villazon performance at Berlin's Waldbuhne which Classcal CD Review called "an absolute knock-out"... The two brought "the audience to a stunned silence with the despairing aria from Eugene Onegin" Bloomberg reported.

7500 people were present on the Red Square, more than 400 cinemas have screened the concert worldwide. Channel 1 (Russa), ZDF (Germany), Arte (France Germany) and ORF (Austria) all have been broadcasting the Red Square concert - literally millions of viewers have seen this great evening.
