Notes and Editorial Reviews

Top artist line-up includes Pavarotti, Domingo and Te Kanawa, with the legendary Herbert von Karajan conducting many of the performances.

A compilation of great Puccini arias and ensembles taken from various performances. The tracklist remains similar to the Puccini Gala VHS/LD but now comes with two exciting bonuses – the end of Act I of La Bohème, sung by Kiri Te Kanawa and Dennis O’Neill, and Bryn Terfel as Scarpia singing an extract from Act II of Tosca.

Format: NTSC
Aspect Ratio: 4:3
Region: 0 (all)
Sound: LPCM Stereo/DTS 5.1 Surround
Subtitles: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese.
