. . . [Netrebko] moved and acted with total commitment . . . She matched Villazón's renowned acting, movement for movement . . . Both are animated stage creatures of considerable acting and singing skills. She looks wonderful and acts the part of a nubile and love-lorn young woman who subliminally knows her ultimate fate . . . Carlo Rizzi's brisk conducting of the first two acts suits the stark staging and, at times, frenetic activity . . . ["Le Nozze di Figaro"]: Ildebrando D'Arcangelo is superb in his singing and acting as he manipulates the plot and characters in a manner appropriate to a "buffa" work. This is particularly noticeable in his relationship with the ladies, in reality and in travesti, the latter referring to Christine Schäfer's flexible-toned soprano rather than the usual mezzo. She sings the role of Cherubino superbly . . . ["La Bohème"]: [Netrebko's] voice, now much larger than in her bel canto days, and with a warm centre, makes her an ideal Mimi. She has an innate ability to act with conviction and bring a role to life . . . Massimo Cavalletti's Marcello is the most vocally appealing and his duet with Rodolfo a performance highlight.

The opera world's reigning prima donna assoluta is the star attraction in DG's video repackaging of live operatic performances from Salzburg. Best of the three is a 2005 production of "La Traviata" to which soprano Netrebko and tenor Rolando Villazon bring conspicuous intensity to the Verdi warhorse. Almost as compelling is "La Boheme" from 2012, with Netrebko and tenor Piotr Beczala striking sparks as Puccini's hapless lovers.

The biggest superstar in the opera world, Russian soprano Anna Netrebko combines intense musicality with the sheer force of her personality to dazzle audiences in any number of dramatic and comedic roles, and this set brings together a trio of her flavorful performances in productions from Austria's long-running summer Salzburg Festival, all of which show off her range. There's her sexy Violetta (in that oh so stunning dress) in 2005's "La Traviata", her charming Susanna in 2006's "The Marriage of Figaro" and her sympathetic Mimi in 2012's "La Boheme". The hi-def transfers and surround-sound audio are top-notch on all three releases.

[Verdi / "La traviata"]: What¿s most extraordinary is the intensity of Netrebko and Rolando Villazón -- vividly, feverishly physical, stunning in impact against a stark set . . . for me it's the best of several outstanding video "Traviatas" . . . [Mozart / "Le nozze di Figaro"]: The beautiful Netrebko, never overplaying through all the kissing and light fondling, smolders with sexuality. Ildebrando D'Arcangelo's Figaro slow-burns throughout, and his voice replicates his looks -- dark and handsome. D'Arcangelo, Netrebko and Franz-Josef Selig, as Bartolo, are the vocal standouts . . . acting superbly are the towering Bo Skovhus as a seriously scary, ax-wielding Count; Dorothea Röschmann as a Countess on the edge of madness and mad for Cherubino; and Christine Schäfer as Cherubino, credible even in close-up as a boy in his early teens. Guth lightens his dark drama with a winged dancer/acrobat/unicyclist "Cherubim," who is dressed like Cherubino and embodies the Eros that drives and maddens the characters. In the Act II finale, he diagrams the characters' complex relationships and attractions to the point of chaos. In the Act IV finale, the characters rise up and throw off his powerful influence. Nikolaus Harnoncourt . . . matches the staging with incisive conducting of the uncut score.
