Containing three of Mozart's best-known and loved operas,
this 5-disc box set features outstanding Royal Opera House productions of Mozart: Don Giovanni (2008), Mozart: Die Zauberflöte (2003) and Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro (2006) as well as a raft of world-class singers and conductors.

"If one of the cast is to be named above the rest, that should be Joyce DiDonato, an outstandingly accomplished Elvira, brilliantly projected, interestingly conceived, her singing concentrated in tone.  Miah Persson is an adorable Zerlina, and I liked what she and others were encouraged to do by way of vocal ornamentation."
- Gramophone (on Don Giovanni)

"Here is a Figaro to put with the 1973 Glyndebourne production placed among the top five operatic DVDs. Figaro and Susanna are very much the center here, and we like them not only because they sing and act well but because they are sympathetic in a modern way."
- Gramophone (on Le Nozze di Figaro)

“...a mellow warmth that was deeply satisfying. Simon Keenlyside...a triumph as quite the most engaging Papageno I have ever encountered... With an exceptional Queen of the Night, Diana Damrou, this is an evening no Mozart lover should miss..."
- The Mail on Sunday (on Die Zauberflöte)
