About

The ultimate opera lover’s collection celebrating the talent of The Royal Opera at a special, lower price.

This 18-opera collection displays the scope of The Royal Opera's work. From the sumptuous beauty of Richard Eyre's La traviata and the picturesque realism of John Copley's La bohème to the psychological intensity of David McVicar's Salome and Kasper Holten's Król Roger, the impressive collection spans more than two hundred years of great operatic works from the classical period to the present day. Featuring some of the company's most popular guest artists, including Renée Fleming, Jonas Kaufmann, Joseph Calleja and Diana Damrau, and conductors including The Royal Opera's Music Director Antonio Pappano, The Royal Opera Collection is a dazzling tour of operatic treasures by Mozart, Verdi, Bizet, Wagner, Mascagni, Leoncavallo, Puccini, Richard Strauss, Szymanowski, Britten and George Benjamin.

This title is a re-packaging of The Royal Opera Collection (OA1244BD / OABD7223BD) at budget price, including the same content and booklet as the original release (which will be discontinued).

"Antonio Pappano’s conducting of all three operas is exemplary, and all are well cast." - BBC Music Magazine ★★★★★ (Il trittico)

"Magic and irresistible ... It is the best opera written over the last twenty years." - Le Monde (Written on Skin)

"Diana Damrau’s supremely sung Queen of the Night oozes class, while Simon Keenlyside’s profoundly human, touchingly sympathetic view of Papageno deserves an Olivier Award." - Classic FM (Die Zauberflöte)

"Nicola Luisotti draws sensuous playing from the ROH orchestra, he and Paul Wingfield generating daring and witty dissonances in their keyboard continuo" - The Independent ★★★★ (Don Giovani)

Extra features:
- Interviews with casts and creatives
- Illustrated synopses
- Behind the Scenes films
