  • The final scene from Richard Strauss' Rosenkavalier alone carries the audience blissfully heavenwards. At this Benefit Gala from the Cologne Opera, this wonderfully romantic piece is only one of the outstanding moments of music featured.


  • The line-up includes one of opera's new superstars Carlos Álvarez, as well as stars like Isabel Bayrakdarian and Neil Shicoff.


  • Two hours of distinguished opera excerpts, from Verdi to Wagner, in addition to Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, as well as the brilliant and powerful finale from Bernstein's West Side Story - with an excellent cast which could not so easily be brought together again. Only on this DVD!
