1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 1 April 2012
I was looking forward to watching this opera for the first time and took guidance from the Amazon Reviews.
This DVD is actually awful. I'm sure the performances are more than adequate however the sound and picture quality
don't even reach the standard of a second generation VHS Tape.
Conclusion don't waste your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster, 20 Aug 2011
Firstly, my copy has numerous momentary breaks in the sound track. Next, although this is a Blu ray disc there is no way this was filmed in HD.
Then we have this awful colour desaturation effect, who ever thought that up should look for alternative employment. Alfie Boe is about the only character that gives this production any credence, Mimi has no resemblance to the Mimi I have loved in traditional productions of this opera. I managed to endure 58 minutes of this and then gave up.
1.0 out of 5 stars Two failures, 10 April 2011
This product failed within 24 hours of use. I contacted the seller who provided
me with a replacement base unit very promptly. The replacement has now failed
after 24 hours. In both cases the machine ran for the first batch but once switched off
the heating element would not switch back on when the machine was switched back on.
