THE DVD SOUND IS VERY POOR QUALITY

"FOR THE LATE 1970s, the audio quality is surprisingly poor.
It can barely be called hifi, the sound seems to be intended for
a tv set speaker. The costume are over the top and unmasculine for the
men. I think that overall, this is a bomb. I would recommend the following
Mozart - Don Giovanni / Gilfry, Polgar, Bartoli, Rey, Nikiteanu, Salminen, Widmer, Harnoncourt, Zurich Opera (2001)
with really great singers but from 1950s (still with good sound in colour):
Mozart - Don Giovanni / Furtwangler (1954) with LISA DELLA CASA !!!"
Tin can sound

"Although the colors are a bid faded, this is a beautifully shot movie. The scenery is very pleasing, and the acting is superb. The real downfall of the film is the sound. It's as if they were singing into tin cans to burn the sound onto records. At times, it's almost acceptable, then something happens and it's horrible again. This really is a pity, because with good sound this would truly be an excellent, cinematic opera production."

"Taking in consideration that it was done in the 70's it is a reasonable recording. Music is great!! Good to have one."

"It had everything to become a memorable performance, but the sound spoiled it all. After all what matters most to me is music. Very disappointed!"
