5.0 out of 5 stars Expressionist interpretation., 8 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britten: Peter Grimes [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
Peter Grimes is a fisherman unable to conform to the requirements of his society due to personality/mental problems.
Picture quality 5
Sound quality 3 - fades to a low level in places.
Sets 5 - all the action takes place on one set. Very symbolic use of sloping straight lines. Stage has a few square shaped poles onto which are attached chairs. Various residents of the fishing village sit on the chairs throughout. This creates the impression of a close knit community where everybody knows what is going on. Overall this set reflects how the mind of Peter Grimes perceives the fishing village.
Storytelling 5
Music making 5 - outstanding conducting by Welser-Most.
Acting 5
Direction (camera work) 5
Singing 5 - everybody excellent.
Costumes 5 - early 20th century.
A modern version of this famous opera using the style of expressionism. A great achievment. Highly recommennded.
