MARIA CALLAS - La Divina (A Film Portrait by Tony Palmer) - Tony Palmer's 1987 film portrait, now available on DVD. Lengthy interviews with colleagues and confidants embrace both Callas' undoubted theatrical genius and the emotional traumas that propelled her stumbling private life. The scene is set from the moment this documentary's producer John Ardoin, himself a Callas biographer, declares the story of Callas the woman to be one of the great tragedies of our time. From that point, the film forges potent links between the evolution of the diva's artistry through her great performances--Tosca, in particular--and the defiant soul captured in a considerable archive of media encounters that range from the intense and contemptuous to the coquettish. This is 90 essential minutes for anyone interested in the Callas legend. Her story will never be better told [REGION CODE 2, 5 & 6] DELETION AS ABOVE 100 052 Arthaus £10.99

OPERA FANATIC (An Opera Road Movie With The World Highest Tenor Directed By Jan Schmidt-Garre) Opera Fanatic, the worlds first opera road movie, needs no Route 66, no Harley Davidson and no smell of gasoline and burning rubber. Things are altogether more stylish when ten divas and a tenor come together with their heady combination of droll humour and vanity. Their quest for the secret of the chest voice turns into a road movie that will appeal to more than just opera fans. Jan Schmidt-Garre lets the eccentric old ladies speak for themselves and in tenor Stefan Zucker confronts them with an expert whose originality lends the fi lm much of its charm.

HEROLD (arr.Lanchbery): La Fille Mal Gardee. Choreography by Frederick Ashton (ALL REGIONS) ‘The Royal Ballet’s present revival makes much of its vigorous characters, its brilliantly virtuosic solos and duets…[Marianella Nunez] gives the swift, intricate footwork as gorgeously as I have ever seen it. …Nunez is an excellent match for Carlos Acosta’s whizzing solos and his cheerful eagerness as her admirer Colas. …Altogether, a terrific show.’ The Stage.
