2.0 out of 5 stars What a shame, 22 Aug. 2011
This was clearly an impessive production with great singers and orchestra completely spoilt by dreadful video direction. Virtually nothing is seen of the magnificent set and the singers are only seen from the waist up. The MET is capable of much better than this. I have recently watched La Somabula from there which was terrific.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfection, 14 Jun. 2011
Natalie Dessay and Juan Diego Florez are two of the greatest talents on the opera stage today and here they star in an imaginative production of La Sonnambula which really works. For once the singing, orchestra, direction and design all come together to create a memorable evening. I recommend this DVD to anyone who loves Opera.

1.0 out of 5 stars Half Baked, 17 Dec. 2008
Abysmally produced and directed. Cast and orchestra under rehearsed - at least I hope so - otherwise there is no excuse. George Walker should have stuck to baked potatoes.
