Yes, that's the one! It was shown in HD, now available on demand as well as
DVD. I've just checked the date and the HD transmission was in January
2009. The splendid Art Deco style production was indeed perfect. The CD set
with Gheorghiu and Alagna was done about a decade earlier, when Alagna was
in a somewhat better vocal shape, with Pappano conducting. I think both the
CD and DVD deserve the highest recommendations.

Best, Vesna
