4.0 out of 5 stars Siegfried Opera Blu ray 22 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Not as good as the first two parts of the Ring cycle, which feature James Levine as conductor.
Still, a good set alltogether.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wagner, Sometimes Better Heard Than Observed! 2 Feb 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've been breaking the habit of a lifetime by buying opera performances on Blu-ray recently. Its the stage setting and costumes that usually put me off. The 'Avant guard' nature of the usually bleak minimalism that passes for the standard these days irritates me no end. I wouldn't waste my money to see it for real in an opera house. This particular performance is as good as I've seen performed anywhere. Workman-like more than outstanding. The set design is intriguing as it is impressive, which is something that has to be seen to be believed. An engineering masterpiece that will leave the viewer wondering how on earth did they do that. Great theatre should be illusory, and this set design qualifies admirably. Bryn Terfel makes a wonderful Wotan. He is the reason for this purchase, and he didn't disappoint.

3.0 out of 5 stars Correction 6 Feb 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Just to say that - fairly easy obviously - the review..'newly hooked on Siegfried ' is of the older Levine Ring. I have not seen this newer version but reviews have been mixed.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT a dull production 29 May 2000
By Theodore Shulman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
I disagree strongly with the reviewer who complained that this production is "dull". It is rescued from dullness by Heinz Zednik, the genius who plays Mime, and by fantastic sets. Also, James Morris is at his peak as the Wanderer, totally convincing visually and vocally (except for his American accent) and he's the only one I've heard so far who can sing the line: "Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha, der witzigster bist du ..." with all the "ha"s correctly timed. Everyone else--especially Hans Hotter--consistantly screws up this line, even in studio recordings.

Ekkehard Wlaschiha hits a homer as Alberich. Superbly menacing as he threatens the Wanderer and a great bully when he fights with Mime over the treasure. He is not dark and dense; his voice doesn't punch you as some do, but his high notes are excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars A truly great production! 4 Jun 2002
By Raymond M. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
This was a very grand production of Seigfried. Master Levine does an incredible job as conductor and his interpretation of Wagner is grand. I do not think the production is dull. The lighting is a bit dark at time, but I think that James Morris is superb as the Wanderer. As expected a very good Metropolitan Opera performance. This completes the Ring Cycle for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars This product is for the Metropolitan Opera 2012 production 6 April 2013
By Kathleen Crisp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
I'm not sure what's going on here but all of the other reviews are for different productions. This blu-ray is for the Metropolitan Opera's 2012 production of "Siegfried." The cast is led by Jay Hunter Morris as Siegfried, Deborah Voigt as Brunhilde and Bryn Terfel as The Wanderer. Fabio Luisi is the condutor.

This is the famous "machine" production by Robert LePage. Jay Hunter Morris is an excellent Siegfried. His voice is amazing, and he brings a joy and energy to the role that I have not seen in other productions. He's a very authentic Siegfried; not a bully or dunce like other interpretations. Blu-ray includes a behind-the-scenes extra of Morris' rise to stardom (he was the cover until the original Siegfried became ill) and the interviews that took place when the production was broadcast in movie theatres.

If you've been intimidated by the Ring Cycle like I was, give this production a try. It's a compelling and fun opera; comedic moments combined with wonderful romance. Check it out!

Although Jerusalem is not well-done, but none of the production from the MET is not GREAT,the scenery,well,was terrific and the last scene, I can only use the term "perfect" to describe that!

2.0 out of 5 stars A dull production 28 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
This is a rather dull production. The singers are OK and whatever one thinks about Jerusalem, he's still a serviceable Siegfried. The other cast members are, however, mediocre and the direction is ordinary.
