4.0 out of 5 stars Dido & Aeneas as it should be presented, 21 May 2009

This review is from: Dido & Aeneas [DVD] [2011] [NTSC] (DVD)
Excellent production values with a good cast, natural settings and believable costumes. Directed with a great eye for the visuals, and a polished 'film' look.

The production brought the story vividly to life, and the splendid music shone through.

Well worth purchasing despite not being widescreen, though I would have preferred a blu-ray version. (Perhaps we have to wait another 14 years?)

Incidentally, in my opinion this production is far superior to the appalling travesty that the Royal Opera House made of this beautiful opera recently with the 'help' of the Royal Ballet.

I first watched this film on the Beeb shortly after it had been released. At the time I was a little sceptical, feeling that one needed to be present at an opera to really sense the live atmosphere of the composers work. This gorgeous production changed all that, and I hope to purchase the DVD, having worn out my video. The cast live this work, with superb costumes that match their performance. My only criticism is directed to the work itself... it is too short!!

Excellent production values with a good cast, natural settings and believable costumes.
M. Ewing's voice is unforgettable, an artist "di qualità" ....

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly excellent production of Purcell's masterpiece, 22 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Dido & Aeneas [DVD] [2011] [NTSC] (DVD)
A truly excellent production of Purcell's masterpiece. Outstanding performances especially Maria Ewing who was born for this part. Outstanding setting and design. However I was tempted to drop this one star due to the appalling one sheet rubbish which pretends to be production notes. If this is the best the BBC can produce then heaven help us. Such brilliance deserves much, much better.

A absolutely wonderful production . Small note , however , that seems to be overlooked . This production is from 1996 and , around about that time , was shown on television .
