Movie Reviews

Very disappointing audio track
P. Hall | 09/04/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This would have been a great production except that the audio is very very poor...almost like is was recorded with a portable cassette tape player in the lap of someone in the audience. We have other DVDs of Glyndebourne Festival Opera performances and they are wonderful. This one should not have ever been released for sale with its poor audio quality."
An essential addition to any opera-lover's library
Ursa Minor | Salt Lake City, UT United States | 03/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Other reviewers have pointed out some obvious weaknesses in this production: rather strange sets, odd use of "highlights" and dimming, and occasional uneven sound quality. But I soon forgot these in the sheer delight of watching a masterful presentation of one of my favorite operas. While all the principals are good, Gerald Finley is an especially memorable Figaro, and Alison Hagley is, quite simply, perfect for the role: a superb voice, tremendous acting ability (with a wonderfully expressive face), and young and sexy - ideal for the part. The DVD would be worth getting just for her performance. Incidentally, one reviewer criticized the DVD for not being widescreen, but actually this production was originally shot for television (i.e., in the 4:3 format), and so there are no "lost edges"."
