Andrea Chenier DVD

"Corelli's performance was magnificent once again proving his superiority as the ultimate Andre Chenier. He convincingly portrays this role with all the emotion and stature required of this challenging role. All fans of Corelli will not be disappointed, as once again, Corelli delivers a legendary performance, clearly solidifying his standing as the ultimate 20th century tenor. The opera itself was opulant with beautiful sets and costumes. The supporting cast is outstanding. This is well worth the meager cost of the dvd. Highly recommended."
Of Historical Interest Only

"This recording clearly has some historical interest, primarily because of Franco Corelli in the title role. Other than that, it sadly shows its age. The sound is thin, and sometimes tinny. It was produced to be a television show or movie, and the lip synching is often visibly un-synched. In addition, the producers think it somehow adds to the overall effect have people talking and shouting (crowd noise) over the music, so they employ this effect much too much.We still need a good DVD production of Andrea Chenier. This one is actually frustrating, because as you watch it, and listen to the wonderful music, you think "if only this were 20 years more recent, and a good, well-produced, live recording.""
