5.0 out of 5 stars Zarzuela hits Salzburg Dec 23 2009
By Juan B. Mansfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is a proof of how Zarzuela has been penetrating within the most demanding audiences everywhere. This time in Salzburg. Taken by the hand of the Birgit Nilsson Contest winner, Placido Domingo, Amor, Vida de Mi Vida is a top show that grabs your attention in every song. Ana Maria Martinez let's know once more the high quality artist she is having one of the most beautiful voices in the world today. Being Spanish speaking makes me feel proud to hear my language sang in the Mozartian city by such a couple of great singers. Domingo sounds potent with that musicality that has made him in my humble opinion the most complete opera singer of all time. A few years ago, I had the pleasure of attending the presentation of Placido Domingo and Ana Maria Martinez at the Teatro Nacional in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, which was an unforgettable night, a landmark event. This DVD reminds me of that beautiful night. This time they do it again in a German speaking country. I advise to all zarzuela lovers, Placido fans, Ana Maria fans, opera fans, music fans and to all musically curious ones to buy this product. You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A demonstration-quality Blu-ray of an exceptional performance Aug. 16 2009
By Bill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Wondering if this is worth the price, since it is a little higher than that of the usual Blu-ray or DVD? Oh, yes. Every penny.

The 1080i Blu-ray picture (in 16:9 format, filling the entire HD TV screen) is stunning. You can even see the veins under Ana Maria Martinez's porcelain skin. If you're thinking that perhaps this indicates there's TOO much detail and you'd rather go for the lower-resolution DVD, think again. All that fine detail the Blu-ray provides helps produce a picture that is incredibly lifelike.

Combine that with the crystal-clear, open sound that the Blu-ray distributes to all speakers and you have an immersive experience. It feels like you are there in the theater -- but better, with close-ups. I was mesmerized and engaged in a way I haven't been outside of a live performance. And by owning this Blu-ray, I can experience it again and again for only a small fraction of the price paid by those in the audience. (By the way, before viewing the concert be sure to go to the settings in the Blu-ray menu to change the audio from the default -- PCM stereo -- to PCM 5.1, if you have a home theater setup. It makes all the difference.)

But superior picture quality and sound would be for naught if the performance being captured weren't worthy. This one is.

What can one say about Placido Domingo? It boggles the mind to think he's been singing for about half a century. He's truly a wonder of the opera world. His tenor voice may sound more baritonal than ever, but it's fully intact, and his artistry is at its peak. Long may he live and provide us with pleasure through his singing.

Ana Maria Martinez was a revelation to me, and you're hearing this from someone who thinks great singers are few and far between nowadays. This Puerto Rican soprano has a gorgeous voice with a rock-solid technique that makes her exquisite singing seem effortless.

The Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg, an Austrian orchestra here playing outside its usual repertoire, does a beautiful job under the baton of veteran Spanish conductor Jesus Lopez Cobos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Domingo does it again!!! April 23 2009
By A. Lupu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A delightful concert given by the best of the best. Zarzuelas never caught too much outside Spain. Domingo is doing his best to expose to the rest of the world this slightly different form of opera/operetta. The melodies in this Blu-Ray are well chosen and beautiful. There is no doubt that Domingo, Martinez and Lopez Cobos really enjoy performing in this concert. The audience also seems to like it, but.. at the end the performers have to please their audiences, so the last encore is a known melody from the Marry Widow sung in German.
The imagery and sound are perfect. In summary, a great concert to enjoy and get exposed to great Zarzuela melodies.
I am still waiting for great full Zarzuela productions on DVD and Blu-Ray available in the US. Luisa Fernanda is one of them, not surprisingly with Domingo in the cast.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravi! May 7 2009

What can you say about Placido Domingo and Ana Maria Martinez. Individually, they are great but together... they are on fire!
Zarzuela is such a nice music form. Too bad it is not more popular in the US.
The orchestra was incredible and the recording was exellent.
The blue Ray version is great. The colors are so vibrant and the sound is crisp.
If you like zarzuela you will love this. If you don't like Zarzuela... you will love it after seing this Blue Ray DVD.

Un beso a mi prima Ana y a Placido por tan buen regalo musical para todos nosotros.

I'll Be waiting for the next Domingo- Martinez DVD!

A. Colon
PS: Already have Misa Tango and Merlin

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational! April 26 2009
By Robert Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Short and sweet: this is a sensational disc. If you enjoy the human voice, you can't not love this concert. The orchestra was a match for the singing and watching the conductor silently sing along brought back memories of Toscanini singing aloud on some of his opera recordings.
Video and audio outstanding. Bravo!
