This really is the best Don Giovanni DVD out there. The most recent release with Thomas Hampson in the title role is also very good, but it is also VERY conceptual and if you are coming to the opera for the first time, then this DVD with Bryn Terfel as a very menacing Don is the one to start with. The Met puts on a great show, with high production values and great conducting from James Levine. The staging is a remount of Franco Zeffirelli's original production, and it is masterful. There really isn't one moment that leaves you wondering, "why on earth did they do that?" like so many conceptual stagings of this opera. Bryn Terfel is a force of nature in the title role, bringing the whole of his mighty voice to bear on Don Giovanni, creating a powerful, confident, evil nobleman who clearly has no fear of the consequences of his actions. Renee Fleming puts on a how-to-sing-Mozart clinic as Donna Anna. The beautiful American soprano was clearly made to sing this role, capturing her desperation and agitation at being horribly, inexorably attracted to the man who slew her father. Her companion Don Ottavio is played by tenor Paul Groves, who made a splash as Candide in the recently filmed production with Patti Lupone and Kristin Chenoweth. His voice is perhaps larger than the typical Ottavio, but in the cavern that is the Metropolitan Opera, he is well equipped to tackle two of the most beautiful and challenging tenor arias in all of opera. As the peasant couple Masetto and Zerlina, we find John Relyea and Hei-Kyung Hong pleasantly rich-voiced and likeable. The role of Leporello is filled by veteran basso Ferruccio Furlanetto. His large, weighty, profound voice brings a humorius buffo quality to the part that other, more lyric-voiced Leporellos sometimes miss--and comedy is so important to this dark opera, that his presence is very welcome. Donna Elvira is played by Solveg Kringelborn and her "Mi tradi" is extremely well-sung. The final scene of the opera in which Don Giovanni is dragged to the depths of the netherworld by the statue of the Commendatore is one of the best on disc. With the Met's tremendous facilities at his disposal, Zeffirelli has the statue (sung spookily by Polish bass Sergei Koptchak) rise from the floor and then pull Giovanni down after. This is a great traditional interpretation of Mozart's great work, and if you're new to the opera, start here!

This is a fabulous performance. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars overall is that we have repeatedly had trouble with Disc 2 cutting out partway through despite exchanging it a couple of times.

Bought DVD and attempted to play in my player. Played fine up to a point, at which the picture froze and I could not correct error. Tried other DVD's I have on hand; all of these worked perfectly; conclusion problem is disc and not machine. Got your approval to return disk for replacerment; sent disc back to you Received new disk; played and had same problem as first disc. Got your permission to return. I returned and asked for a refund--no more disks, please. I have never heard from you since. A reputable firm would not act like this. Where is my refund?
