Opus Arte's presentation of Dominic Dromgoole's production of William Shakespeare's "Love's Labour's Lost" is highly entertaining, and for me, highly recommended.
Firstly, the technical aspects of the disc are very good. The production takes place in a reproduction of Shakespeare's "The Glode" theater in which the stage was surrounded by the audience. The disc's sound felt very immersive, placing you in that audience. The video was sharp and clear.
Next, the camera work was excellent, adding a necessary shift of attention from actor to actor, neither just holding one frame too long, nor switching, Michael Bay-like, and intruding on the presentation.
Finally, the production itself is delightful, mixing Shakespeare's most intellectual play with the overtones of a Mack Sennet pie fight. The problems of the "unfunny clowns" is here solved.
If you have enjoyed videos of Shakespeare's plays that have "updated" the settings (I'm looking at you, "Romeo+Juliet"), try viewing this production.
