Editorial Reviews

To mark the 200th anniversary of Giuseppe Verdi's birth, the TEATRO REGIO DI PARMA, UNITEL CLASSICA and C MAJOR ENTERTAINMENT have joined forces to realize a truly unique and monumental project - TUTTO VERDI. For the first time ever, Verdi's complete operatic output is now available in High Definition and Surround Sound on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The Tutto Verdi Premium Box, available on either DVD or Blu-ray Disc, includes new productions of all 26 of Verdi's operas plus his Requiem, as well as the documentary "Verdi's Backyard," with each production including a 10 minute introduction explaining the story, characters and history of the opera. The Tutto Verdi Premium collection is lavishly presented in a LP-size box, with a linen-bound 124 page book that includes 40 full-color photos and texts by renowned writers Philip Gossett and Roger Parker. The productions, newly recorded for the Tutto Verdi project, feature the world's best Verdi singers including Daniela Dess, Marcelo Alvarez, Leo Nucci, Nino Machaidze, Fiorenza Cedolins & Norma Fantini, to name a few; conductors Daniele Callegari, Yuri Temirkanov, Gianluigi Gelmetti, Nicola Luisotti and more; in productions staged by Pier Luigi Pizzi, Denis Krief, Daniele Abbado and Pier'Alli. The operas Un giorno di regno and Alzira see their first ever productions available on DVD, and many will be appearing for the first time ever on Blu-ray: Luisa Miller, Il corsaro, Giovanna d'Arco, I Lombardi, Nabucco, I due Foscari, Un giorno di regno, I Vespri siciliani, La battaglia di Legnano, Stiffelio, Alzira, I masnadieri, Don Carlo and Ernani.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent project July 26, 2013
By Peter
Format:Blu-ray
This is a fantastic project that C-major has undertaken here. All Verdi's 26 operas plus the "Requiem" in one Blu Ray (BD) or DVD set. You won't get "Jerusalem" (which is an alternative version of "I Lombardi alla prima crociata") or "Aroldo" (which is an alternative version of "Stiffelio"). And you will get "Alzira" in a concertante version only. But all the same, this is a beautifully packed product which includes a 121 page LP-sized book on all the included operas and performances. Additionally, on each BD or DVD there is a 10-11 minute introduction to the operas. On the Requiem-disc there is a documentary called "Verdi's background", filmed at different locations in the region of Parma. I bought the complete set after having seen the sampler. The picture quality is excellent, 1080i, 16:9. The sound is either DTS-HD master audio 5.1 or PCM stereo. There are subtitles in eight different languages.

Most of operas are from the Parma opera house and recorded between 2008 and 2012. A few descend from other houses, such as Dobbiaco (Alzira), San Carlo Naples (I Masnasieri), Trieste (La battaglia di Legnano), Modena (Don Carlo), and Salzburg (Otello). Most of the performances seem to be in a traditional style, which suits me well. The opera house in Parma is a small one, but that does not necessarily mean that the productions are inferior. (One of my best opera memories ever was a performance of Falstaff in a tiny opera house in Montepulciano, Italy, in the summer of 2002.) As a whole, it is not possible to give this box less than five stars, even if individual perfomances may not reach this level. Hint: The price is not the same at different Amazon stores. I bought my set at their UK site.
