As comparably short operas, Cavalleria Rusticana and Pagliacci are often billed together, but seldom is the lead tenor making his double role debut as Turiddu and Canio on the same evening. At the 2015 Salzburg Easter Festival, Jonas Kaufmann did just that to rapturous praise. Universally hailed as a coup for Kaufmann, the plaudits were also showered on Philipp StÃ¶lzl for his innovative staging which includes live video projections while referencing the era of black-and-white movies.Disc 11.

Chekhov - Uncle Vanya
Manufacturer: Kultur Video Model: 032031487994
Laurence Olivier's production of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya performed by the Chichester Festival Theatre. Olivier's production of Chekhov's masterpiece is rightly famous. In addition to following Constance Garnet's beautiful translation of the play faithfully and staging the play carefully (albeit in a traditional fashion), Olivier, who plays Astrov (the Doctor, who, as in all Chekhov's plays, represents the playwright himself) assembled a stellar cast of actors: Joan Plowright is a perfect Sonia and Rosemary Harris a subtle Yelena. The older characters are filled out by some giants of the 20th century English stage, including Max Adrian, Lewis Casson, and Casson's wife, the magnificent Dame Sybil Thorndike as the Nurse. Topping the list, of course, is a fine performance by Michael Redgrave in the title role. Olivier and his actors are able to evoke the classic Chekhovian mood from the opening and carry it through smoothly and warmly until the end. The result gives the viewer a gentle and bittersweet view into 'country life' (see Chekhov's subtitle) and how people waste the gift of life with petty complaints rather than taking charge of it. This production is a perfect introduction to Chekhov and should be seen by all who love theatre.

Elie Wiesel in Concert: Memories & Melodies of My
Manufacturer: Sfm Entertainment Brand: JVC Model: NA
On December 18, 2010 Elie Wiesel sang live at the 92Y. This once in a lifetime (literally) event was recorded and this DVD is the product of that recording. The reasoning behind the event was behind this performance is perhaps best described by producer John Heyman, who said: "I do not come from a religious background. Although I did have a bar mitzvah and we always fasted on Yom Kipper, we were not observant. We had left Germany to settle in London in 1933, and I remember many mornings when I left home for school with my mother crying because she had just heard of another relative lost in Hitler's slaughter of the Jews. 176 members of my family disappeared. By time I met Nizza, my soon-to-be wife, I had become totally assimilated. She brought me back to my roots and made me realize how terribly important my Judaism was. She also introduced me to Marion and Elie Wiesel. I first heard Elie sing at my wedding, at which he officiated, and subsequently at many High Holidays over the years. As we shared Seders I was invariably moved; his songs and the way he sang them brought out my feelings of Jewishness. It struck me, then, that this was an experience I wanted to record for the benefit of our children and grandchildren. I asked Phil Ramone for advice and help, and we decided to make a permanent record of the songs from Elie's childhood, so that the entire world could share the joy that I feel every time I hear Elie sing."
