Bringing together three of Verdi's most popular operas, this 3 DVD box set presents some of the world's leading artists in outstanding productions, all from the stage of the world famous Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London. Bryn Terfel takes the title role in Graham Vick's riotous production of Falstaff conducted by Bernard Haitink; David McVicar's hedonistic production of Rigoletto stars Marcello Alvarez, Paolo Gavanello and Christine Schäfer under the baton of Sir Edward Downes; José Cura & Dmitri Hvorostovsky lead the cast in Elijah Moshinsky's blazingly passionate Il Trovatore conducted by Carlo Rizzi.

Reviews
‘The singers are on top form, dominated by Terfel’s Falstaff, a nobleman at heart and breeding whose conceit is as sincere as his actions are outrageous.’ Musical Opinion (Falstaff)

‘…an exceptional, crisp, choral ensemble; and outstanding staging…’ Video Librarian (Il Trovatore)

‘…with Christine Schäfer as a matchless Gilda and Edward Downes, the finest Verdian of the age, conducting, it’s a production that rages at the cruelty of the world.’ BBC Music Magazine (Rigoletto)
