3.0 out of 5 stars Definitive production let down by technology, 17 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Peter Grimes [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
It is, without a doubt, an outstanding production by the Royal Opera House but it should be made clear that this is a 1981 videotape recording presumably transferred to DVD in 2003 - not staged that year as the search results imply. Consequently the image quality I would rate as poor, almost as though it had been pirate copied from a film screen. I would have gone for the Met's 2008 version if I had realised this as the image quality was a distraction from my all-time favourite opera.
