La Rondine/Met and Faust/ROH soon out on DVD

.
Very, very, very good news this morning. Something I've been waiting for for a year and half. Almost (if not all) all the other productions from 2008/2009 MetHD Broadcast were already realeased on DVD but La Rondine. It seems that its time has come. Same for Faust. EMI Classics offers us a real treat in October.
.
21C Media Group announced: EMI Classics releases two operas on DVD. The first is Puccini's La rondine from the Met production by Nicholas Joël filmed in Jan 2009, conducted by Marco Armiliato, and starring Angela Gheorghiu, Lisette Oropesa, Roberto Alagna, Marius Brenciu, and Samuel Ramey. Gounod's Faust from London's Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, is conducted by Maurizio Benini and features an all-star cast led by Angela Gheorghiu, Roberto Alagna, and Bryn Terfel.

  2. The original run of "Faust", which was relayed on BBC TV, was conducted by Pappano , and later revivals by Benini but not with the cast listed above.

    Simon Keenleyside is also the Valentin
