Pictorials not very good, but everything else bravo by johnnyclock February 5, 2007 - 10:03 PM PST
The visual part of this production is not captured well on the DVD -- it often lacks the lighting to show what is happening; but there is no doubt that the singing is marvelous, expressive; the acting is very good, the roles play well with each other, which can be lacking in opera at times. And, perhaps, what supports and drives the cast is a very appreciative audience. All in all, well worth a listen.
Oddly, I could not find this particular production listed on imdb -- which had twenty or so other productions listed -- so I only know what it says on this page at the top, about the production, that is.

Operas and Ballets at GreenCine, annotated
{a list in progress}: GC's 'Music' and 'Music Videos/Performance' genres return tons of entries, mostly pop, but still omit a lot. Here's what I find (1/08) of 'classical' opera & ballet, loosely defined, but excluding purely instrumental performances.
