Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

Two of the biggest names in opera joined forces for a live performance from historic Red Square in the heart of Moscow, captured in stunning sound and vision with 18 high definition cameras and 5.1 cinema surround sound.

Recorded at a superb live concert on 19 June 2013, Anna Netrebko and Dmitri Hvorostovsky returned to their native Russia, singing a brilliant program of popular arias and duets from some of the world’s best-loved operas, including Tosca, Eugene Onegin, and, celebrating Verdi's bicentenary, Il trovatore.

They were accompanied by Russia's State Academic Symphony Orchestra “Evgeny Svetlanov” and
Read more the huge forces of the Academic Grand Choir Masters of Choral Singing, under the baton of Constantine Orbelian.

Every detail of the once-in-a-lifetime event was faithfully captured by director Frank Hof, whose work includes the memorable Anna Netrebko, Placido Domingo, and Rolando Villazon performance at Berlin’s Waldbuhne, which Classical CD Review called “an absolute knock-out”… The two brought “the audience to a stunned silence with the despairing aria from Eugene Onegin” Bloomberg reported.

7500 people were present on the Red Square, more than 400 cinemas have screened the concert worldwide. Millions of viewers have seen this great evening.

 live at red square/netrebko-hvorostovsky January 27, 2014 By richard  m. (Kalispell, MT) See All My Reviews "the singing is as expected. both have wonderful voices and are in good form and work well together when they sing duets - all opera arias , verdi and puccini and the final scene from onegin. the views of red square at night are fun to see, the reds in the buildings are toned up and the camera doesnt quite know what to do with itself as it waits out the arias but there are some wonderful shots. what was not expected and is quite surprising was the audience : the response to the verdi and puccininwas tepid but perhaps the applause was toned down, but faces were the usual dour russian faces, the last three numbers-Russian songs were a surprise- die caardasfursten enthusiastically sung by netrebkpo, ochi chyornye (dark eyes) seductively sung by hvorostovsky and finally Moscow nights sung by everyone - the audience came to life stood up, waved back and forth, cried , hugged each other,sang along- it was quite moving and an expression of national unity."

 Video problems December 17, 2013 By Joseph B. (Northville, MI) See All My Reviews "The DVD Live in Red Square has wonderful music, full voices with dramatic interpretations from Netrebko and Hvorostovsky, but the camera work is enough to make one sea-sick. Instead of focusing on the singers the camera men focused on quick pan and zoom. Because of the poor camera work --not staying on the subject I can only recommend the singing and orchestra. Don't watch the screen and you will enjoy it much more." Report Abuse
 "Live from Red Square" December 17, 2013 By Thomas I. (Lebanon, PA) See All My Reviews "This is a most interesting program; however, it is difficult to watch the singing portions because the sound and picture are not properly coordinated." Report Abuse
