EMI releases La Rondine on DVD on September 13th

.
FINALLY! ...I might say. It's one of the few Met Live in HD productions that hasn't been released on DVD yet. But its time has come.
.
EDIT - while watching the trailer and listening to Angela speaking so nicely of this opera, a question came to my mind. A question for whomever might know the answer... is there any chance (in the close or remote future) for La Rondine in Europe?
.
Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna star in the 2009 Metropolitan Opera production of Puccini’s La Rondine (The Swallow). This new production, directed by Nicholas Joël, was the company’s first staging in 70 years.
.
As bonus on the DVD, two interviews: Bonuses: Angela Gheorghiu & Roberto Alagna and Lisette Oropesa & Marius Brenciu
.
There is also a video traier for this DVD

    Angela seems so happy speaking about La Rondine and Roberto...so I, personally, still hope in a happy ending.

  3. This is the same production they used at Covent Garden I think... so there has been La Rondine in a piece of Europe!

  5. Thank you very much, Irina, for the information and the video ! In France, the DVD is foreseen for September 20, and it is not the same photo on the cover.
