About

Combining two of the most beloved bel canto operas: Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia and Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi. Both operas are renowned for their extraordinarily emotional and elegant music, featuring tragic arias such as ‘La tremenda ultrice spade’, ‘Ella è morta, o sciagurato’ from I Capuletti e i Montecchi and ‘M’odi, ah, m’odi!’ from Lucrezia Borgia.

Lucrezia Borgia, the femme fatale notorious for her ruthless pursuit of power, reveals poignant vulnerability when she comes face-to-face with her long lost son. Starring Renée Fleming, Michael Fabiano, Elisabeth DeShong and Vitalij Kowaljow and recorded live at the San Francisco Opera, September-October 2011

The passion and pain of the world’s most famous star-crossed lovers – the heartbreaking story of Romeo and Juliet – is exquisitely told in I Capuleti e i Montecchi. Starring Joyce DiDonato, Nicole Cabell, Saimir Pirgu, Eric Owens and Ao Li and recorded live at the San Francisco Opera, October 2012. Extensive bonus features including interviews with Joyce DiDonato and Renée Fleming.
