Editorial Reviews

The knock-out concert event of 2006! Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo and Rolando Villazón came together for one unforgettable evening of opera arias and ensembles. This is not a cross-over concert, but a genuine collection of operatic gems, performed by three thrilling performers in front of an audience of 20,000 roaring fans. The excitement in the audience brings out the best in each performer. With selections from L'Arlesiana, Gianni Schicchi, Otello, Les Pêcheurs de Perles, Giuditta, La Bohème, West Side Story and much more! Marco Armiliato leads the Deutschen Oper Berlin Orchestra.

This Berlin concert in Waldbuhne, the largest outdoor arena in Europe, is so great that you can watch over and over again. All three opera stars are brilliant and amazing! Domingo looked older than I thought but he's still a great singer with all the power and techniques. I just hoped he could be around for a long time. Both Netrebko and Villazon sing with such power and confidence as if they want to brag themselves telling how good youth is. Without a doubt, they are new "BIG" stars in a new generation. Yes, the vision and audio are at top notch. One drawback is, however, one (at least) of many cameras was probably not in HD so the vision suddenly changes to unclean and grainy look from time to time, which is actually rather annoying. All in all, you will love this blu-ray with the outstanding concert.

My DVD collection is now quite extensive and I give away some that I won't return to, but this concert is so good that I watched it twice in two days. It has earned a place on my "to keep" shelf. First of all, the filming and the sound are excellent and you almost feel that you are there, in the best seats, of course. Placido Domingo, gray hair and all, still has his powerful voice and real star presence. He sings with two of the greatest current vocal greats, Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon, in a beautifully chosen and most enjoyable repertoire. The orchestra is a good match for the three stars in quality. You won't regret acquiring this DVD. It is an outstanding concert and perhaps there won't be that many more with Placido Domingo singing, rather than conducting,as he does more and more often these days. Highly recommended!

Yes, Netrebko, Villazon, and Domingo all sing as perfectly as we could imagine. But the surprise for me was the acting and passion that each brought to this outdoor performance before a gigantic and appreciative audience.

First, it's Netrebko, swaying to the music and almost dancing as she sings the line, "My mother was a dancer" from Franz Lehar's Giuditta.

Later, Villazon captivates the audience with a rousing, delightful, "Italian Wedding-style" La Danza by Rossini. Alongwith the audience, Netrebko is so inspired that she's still dancing, as he leads her out for her La Boheme aria.

As twilight approaches at this outdoor "forest concert" in Berlin, the night is capped off by all three, performing a Lehar song, "Dein ist mein ganzes Herz" ("You are my only love"), in which Domingo and Villazon alternate their wooing, each pulling Netrebko towards them. Alternating her own flirtations, she puts the cherry on the sundae with a high note that brings down the house. It just doesn't get any better than this.

I was so enthusiastic about this concert that I invited friends over to see whether I was just bewitched, or if they too, found it enchanting. Indeed, they too found it irresistible. You will love this concert so much that you will barely be able to wait to share it with friends!

If you love good operaric singing but you're not in the mood for an entire opera, play this festive and informal DVD from the 2006 outdoors Berlin concert. Everybody-the singers,the conductor, the orchestra, the audience-is happy and having a good time. The informality of the concert does not diminish or affect the quality of singing or the orchestra playing. Domingo's almost exclusive involvement with the dramatic/heroic tenor roles has not affected the legato and timbre of his voice, and its expressiveness and lyricism are so beautiful in "Federico's" aria from L'Arlesiana. Villazon's clarion and top ring are glorious. Netrebko's voice is bigger, darker and sweeter. In the last encore from Lehar's "Merry Widow," Netrebko overpowers both Doomingo and Villazon in the last high note the three are singing together! The video is sharp and first rate. The audio is well-balanced, and thanks to Armiliato's conducting and fine acoustics engineering, it produces a studio quality sound. This DVD deserves, unquestionably, 5 stars for entertainment and artistic value.

The dream couple of opera along with Placido Domingo provide many highlights in this well filmed concert from Berlin to celebrate the closing of the Soccer World Cup. I do agree with many of the reviewers that Domingo's diction is exemplary, compared with the new kids on the block. However, I must confess slight disappointment that none of the reviewers make mention that Domingo transposes most of his solo arias than what is originally written, which I am sure is to be expected, given the fact that he was 65 at the time of the recording.

However, Anna and Rolando's performances are incredible. Each aria or duet is sung with such passion and fervour. Highlights are definitely Rolando's 'La Danza' which gets the audience clapping and up on their feet and Anna's 'Quando m'en vo', where she also surprises the audience. Watch the DVD and see what I mean. Reservations aside, this is a classy concert, excellently filmed and the enormous audience of over 12 000 people enjoy every minute. Conductor Marco Armiliato and the Orchestra of the Deutsche Oper provide warm and sympathetic accompaniment to the star singers.
