Donizetti's rollicking comic opera "The Elixir of Love" receives a scintillating performance in this early 1970's London/Decca recording. Featuring an unbeatable cast, headed by Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti, this wonderful interpretation demonstrates singing of the highest levels of artistic integrity- definitive, passionate, lyrical, committed. The English Chamber Orchestra responds to Richard Bonynge's direction to provide sharp, colorful orchestral support, and the Ambrosian Opera Chorus' performance can only be described as brilliant. Donizetti wrote immediately attractive operatic works, this "Elixir of Love" being a perfect example.

Dopo diciotto anni trascorsi in carcere in New Mexico, William Garnett (Forest Whitaker) ha una sola cosa in mente: inserirsi nuovamente nella società e riprendere una vita normale. Emily Smith (Brenda Blethyn), l'ufficiale predisposta alla sua supervisione, è al suo fianco per sostenerlo ma il passato di Garnett fatica ad abbandonarlo. Lo sceriffo Bill Agati (Harvey Keitel) ha infatti intenzione di fargli pagare a caro prezzo la morte del suo vice avvenuta venti anni prima.

For sheer vocal splendor you can't go wrong with the 1971 Decca recording featuring the virile baritone Sherrill Milnes as Rigoletto, Luciano Pavarotti in radiant voice as a stylish but slightly scene-stealing Duke, and Joan Sutherland as a Gilda who is a little too vocally resplendent to come across as innocent, but is certainly a treat to hear.

Callas only sang Gilda in Rigoletto in one run of performances, in Mexico City in 1952, and she recorded the role three years later. She moves beyond the girlish tone and sparkling coloratura of the character's first scenes to create a figure of tragic stature as events unfold. 'Once heard, this rendering is never likely to be forgotten,' was Gramophone's judgement on her interpretation, and the same could apply to Tito Gobbi's, embodying every aspect of the accursed court jester.

Fred Vargas - La seconda trilogia Adamsberg: Sotto i venti di Nettuno-Nei boschi eterni-Un luogo incerto
Italian | Einaudi | 2014 | ISBN: 8806220276 | 1011 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Dopo "La trilogia Adamsberg", che raccoglieva le prime indagini del commissario antirazionale, flemmatico e un po' filosofo creato da Fred Vargas, questo volume raccoglie i tre romanzi successivi. In "Sotto i venti di Nettuno" Adamsberg, oltre a dover risolvere una catena di omicidi tutti uguali, deve fare i conti con un passato che sembra tornato per rovinargli la vita. Il fantasma di una monaca del Settecento, al centro di "Nei boschi eterni", catapulta, invece, il nostro "spalatore di nuvole" in una Francia esoterica, di scure e vivissime credenze, tra cadaveri profanati per estrarne misteriose pozioni magiche che assicurano la vita eterna, a costo di orrendi delitti. Infine, in "Un luogo incerto", il ritrovamento di diciassette piedi spinge Adamsberg a percorrere un'Europa dove, dopo quasi trecento anni, la stirpe di Dracula non ha smesso di infestare il mondo.

Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) è un poliziotto addetto alla sicurezza dei voli che vede il suo lavoro come qualcosa di abitudinario e poco rischioso.

Un messaggio di testo anonimo lo informa infatti che un passeggero morirà ogni venti minuti nel caso in cui il governo non trasferisca su un conto segreto la somma di 150 milioni di dollari.
