5.0 out of 5 stars STUPENDOUS DVD 26 July 2010
I have seen many performances of DIE PLEDERMAUS including one at the Bregenz Festival on an island stage where a singer arrived in a boat. But this performance from Munich outshines all others. The scene with the Champagne Polka has everyone on stage dancing and falling down drunk! Even Mr Kleiber is seen dancing as he conducted. This DVD is a MUST.

Not a review of Die Fledermaus itself: a fairly pointless exercise as few review readers won't know the operetta.

Firstly, it isn't an English translation (which never works) but the original German.

It's colourful, energetic, and well sung. The leads are all good actors as well as singers and it's a good looking production as well.

The English sub-titles are, if you need to use them, good, clear and fairly unobtrusive.

Thoroughly recommend it.

The acting & singing are as good as it gets. The only problem is how to stop laughing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Supremely well-acted Fledermaus 18 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are many bright stars shining in this filmed performance of Strauss’s Die Fledermaus (it's a studio film, not a filmed theater performance), but perhaps the brightest of them all is Otto Schenk the stage director, who, aside from magisterially playing the spoken part of Frosch the prison guard, magisterially coordinates this charming, charming staging of the operetta (just like he did that same year for the audio recording of the same operetta for conductor Willi Boskovsky and his great ensemble under the EMI label – and it is hard to choose between the greatness of the two casts; vocally at least, one singer in each recording makes each unmissable for me: Gundula Janowitz in this one and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in the Boskovsky).
The dialogues in the spoken sections of this performance (seemingly recorded live, while the musical numbers are obviously done in lip-sinc, but very well) play like very very good theater: they are well acted, measured and funny: funny but never vulgar, even at their broadest (and there are a few broad moments and situations in the operetta); the pace is masterful. Everyone delivers beautifully under Schenk’s guidance, and the light and graceful Viennese tone is captured dead on by everyone. You may have your favorites among the performers, both theatrically and vocally, but they are all superb. The acting is always engaging, always natural and crisp (granted, the broadness is just slightly less grounded in the climax of the third act, but why quibble?), always born from the characters (the actors/singers never break character).
