3.0 out of 5 stars Musically excellent; stage business sometimes silly and absurd., 25 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Fidelio: Zurich Opera House 2004 [DVD] [2013] [NTSC] (DVD)
I agree with other commentators on the excellence of the music in this dvd. However, the rather bleak stage is uninspiring and there is some bizarre stage business e.g. during Rocco's 'gelt' aria, the latter throws banknotes over the head of the kneeling Fidelio who confusedly scrambles around picking them up. The wonderful 'O welche lust' chorus takes place mostly in darkness, with a central spotlight - the prisoners are supposed to be celebrating their liberation from dark cellars into a sunlit garden!
