Notes & Reviews:
"The production by Deutsche Oper Berlin ... achieves a beautiful balance between the stage drama and the music. It proves that there are still singers who can perform Verdi's melodies at the highest level and that it is also possible to bring them together into an ensemble. The production fulfills all one's expectations of the modern city of Berlin in terms of stylishness and performance." Der Tagesspiegel

There's no way this could be recommended as a first-choice Don Carlos on DVD. It's in German and is a butchered version of the already incomplete four-act edition. . . This gives you a satisfying contrast of Luc Bondy's minimalism with Visconti's obsessive opulence, but then, not buying this fascinating but flawed German film would be to deny oneself not only Sellner's impressive staging and innovative return to Schiller's ending, but also some of the best singing, in German or otherwise, to be heard in Verdi. If you want my advice, you're going to have to buy three DVDs of Don Carlos, aren't you?
