Have a look at the 19 reviews of the non blu ray version on Amazon.com. I won't repeat them. This blu ray shows off HD to briliant effect. The costumes, the set and the design produce an effect which dazzles the eye. A truly world class performance from Juan Diego Flores alone makes this a worthy addition to your collection. It can be nitpicked but if you are building a blu ray collection, include this to show it off.
