Editorial Reviews

This specially priced 3-DVD set (three for the price of two) features Luciano Pavarotti at the Met in three of the legendary Italian tenor's greatest roles: * His Nemorino in L'elisir d'amore is "a blend of rustic innocence with a warm, amorous side, and a bit of virtuosic hamminess." (New York Times) * As Rodolfo in La Bohème, "he was in peak form in 1977...funny, warm, touching, believable, and a consummate vocal stylist." (Fanfare) * In Pagliacci, Pavarotti "was singing Canio for the first time on stage, and he does so magnificently, dramatically as well as vocally." (International Record Review) This fabulous collection includes bonus footage featuring interviews with Luciano Pavarotti, James Levine, and Renata Scotto, as well as a picture gallery.

If you let yourself be guided by the cover of the DVD set, you would think that Pavarotti stars in all four operas included in the set; the truth is that he is the leading tenor in three of them. But pleasant surprise! Placido Domingo is the tenor in "Il Tabarro", Puccini's one-act opera which complements Leoncavallo's "Pagliacci", also included. So, despite being "cheated" of Pavarotti's presence here, one cannot complain: I appreciate the work of both of the leading tenors of the 20th Century. The quality of the recordings is not state of the art, but honestly did not interfere at all with my enjoyment of the operas. "La Boheme" could stand remastering, but the viedo and sound are more than adequate, nonetheless. The price for this set is one of the greatest bargains in the entire lineup of DVD recordings offered in Amazon.

The Italian Opera Collection
Sometimes I rush & don't get what I intend to. I read the reviews before purchasing this DVD. Not only was it favorable but it kept me from making a mistake on a gift for my Husband. The night of my husbands "B" Day he watched part of the Collection. Boy was I shocked to see tears come down this 6'5" - 220lb man's cheeks. The 2nd night even more tears. He says he has never seen such a Beautiful performance. He is a Hughe Fan of the late Luciano Pavarotti. Says The Italian Opera Collection by Luciano Pavarotti, Metropolitan Opera is more than 5 Star. He highly recommends this item.

If you are just getting into the opera genre, this is a must have. Four classic operas with this generations greatest tenors for less than $9 per opera. The acting is outstanding. Would be nice if the video quality was improved especially on the earlier opera La Boheme, but the experience is still wonderful.

I have been an opera fan for over 50 years now. And when I speak of "Opera" I mean Italian operas preferably performed by outstanding Italian Opera singers. Luciano Pavarotti is the best TENOR in my life time, possibly ever.

I was very sad when the nasty cancer took him from us. I had seen a couple of his live performances one in Los Angeles- the 3 Tenors - more than a decade ago and one short performance in Italy.

I have made a goal to obtain all operatic performances by Pavarotti and this DVD is one of his early works when his voice was as beautiful as ever. Thank you.

Patches.

This is a great deal on several Italian operas. There are actually 4 operas contained in this collection, one with Placido Domingo as the lead male vocalist, "Il Tabarrro" and three operas with Luciano Pavarotti as the lead tenor, "I Pagliacci", "l'Elisir D'Amore" and "La Boheme". In other words, you get an extra opera not mentioned in the description. I have not got through all of the operas but so far have loved what I have seen and would highly recommend this collection, especially to budding opera fans such as myself. There is included a booklet which gives a fairly thorough description of each of the story lines and subtitle options in various languages for each of the operas. Luciano Pavarotti is amazing and unequaled in my humble opinion.
