Madame Butterfly

Madame Butterfly Lowest new price: $65.30
Lowest used price: $33.75
List price: $19.99

An acclaimed cinematic adaptation of Puccini's popular opera about the tragic love affair between a naive geisha and the American naval officer who deserts her and their young child. Nominated for two French Cesar awards.

Like the finest of film scores with its fluid beauty and succession of intensely romantic tunes, Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly has a surprisingly cinematic feel. In 1995 director Frederic Mitterand exploited this quality of the story, exposing a young woman's disillusionment against a backdrop of cultural chasms. Shot on location, with Tunisia doubling convincingly as a turn-of-the-century Nagasaki, this Butterfly shines with fragile beauty. The house becomes a brilliantly used set, at once airy and full of the scent of flowers and at the same time a cage for the trapped woman. Archive footage of bygone Nagasaki is used skillfully to underline the distance between the 15-year-old bride and Pinkerton.

Purists may prefer a more traditionally robust, stage-bound Butterfly, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a more visually heartbreaking interpretation. Chinese soprano Ying Huang doesn't rock the rafters with her vocal power; hers is a tender, delicately observed performance. Tenor Richard Troxell's self-seeking Pinkerton is well sung. Overall, this is a haunting cinematic treatment of an enduringly popular opera. --Piers Ford

""If one of the cast it to be named above the rest, that should be Joyce DiDonato, an outstandingly accomplished Elvira, brilliantly projected, interestingly conceived, her singing concentrated in tone. Miah Persson is an adorable Zerlina, and I liked what she and others were encouraged to do by way of vocal ornamentation."" (Gramophone - Don Giovanni) ""Here is a Figaro to put with the 1973 Glyndebourne production placed among the top five operatic DVDs. Figaro and Susanna are very much the center here, and we like them not only because they sing and act well but because they are sympathetic in a modern way."" (Gramophone - Le Nozze di Figaro) ""...a mellow warmth that was deeply satisfying. Simon Keenlyside...a triumph as quite the most engaging Papageno I have ever encountered... With an exceptional Queen of the Night, Diana Damrou, this is an evening no Mozart lover should miss..."" (The Mail on Sunday - Die Zauberflote)

Philip Glass & Robert Wilson: Einstein on the Beach

Philip Glass & Robert Wilson: Einstein on the Beach Lowest new price: $29.57
Lowest used price: $34.90
List price: $39.99
Brand: BBC / Opus Arte

“I began with this photo of Einstein in his study at Princeton. I looked at many photos of Einstein. Photos of him when he was two years old, 20 years old, 40, 60, 70 years old. In all standing portraits of him, he held his hand in the same position as in the photo. The little space between his thumb and the next finger is always the same. I started the opera with this gesture. And continued.” (Robert Wilson)

“I don’t care about music theory, I’m only interested in listening to music. I begin by listening. Like images emerging from the mist and becoming visible.” (Philip Glass)

“It was the time of pop art and minimalism, often one set against the other. Pop art is a proclamation of the end of the world. The minimal movement is a new beginning.” (Lucinda Childs)

Press Reviews
"At the Théâtre du Châtelet, the opera first performed in 1976 by Bob Wilson and Philip Glass causes the same emotion as when it was first created. A true work of art of about four and a half hours where the visual is inseparable from the musical score. There are several ways to approach the revival thirty-seven years later: One can be nostalgic about what was progressive in one's youth and since became a classic; with the jaded look of the 2014 listener who heard dozens of works by Glass and Wilson since and seen so many shows and whom nothing can surprise. Or one can disregard all memory layers and open one's eyes filled with wonder as if it were the first time: Which is what happened! ... And most striking is that, compared to many pioneers of the past who now seem quite insipid as times went on, their creation has kept its surprises." (Le Figaro)

"On the evening of Tuesday, January 7, time flew and space became infinite. It was the opening night of Einstein on the Beach, the opera by Philip Glass and Robert Wilson, and after curtain down, at about 11 o clock, you could see in front of the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris, people who had the look of brightness of a hypnotic journey. They came out of the performance, but is that the right word when it comes to this sensory experience? Not sure, and whatever. What matters is what happened: During more than four hours in an auditorium where everyone was invited to come and go at will, and where, however, almost no one left. Not because the audience did not want to disturb their neighbours; because they just did not want to leave, not even for a short time, and take their attention away from what they saw and heard.
