Celebrating Wagner, Verdi, Britten and others with OPERA 2013

A glittering selection of operatic highlights and arias, featuring great composers and artists who are all celebrating significant anniversaries in 2013.

The 200th anniversary of both Wagner and Verdi, the 100th birthday of Benjamin Britten and the 50th anniversary of Francis Poulencs death all take place in this year. Many great singers give us even more reason to celebrate: There is Maria Callas' 90th, Janet Bakers 80th and Roberto Alagnas 50th birthday. 
This album includes great artists like Mariss Jansons, Marek Janowski, Klaus Tennstedt, Riccardo Muti, Rolando Villazón, Natalie Dessay, Diana Damrau, Philippe Jaroussky and Otto Klemperer.

Every release of the series so far has been a great opera festival, but none has ever been as colourful as OPERA 2013.
