3.0 out of 5 stars A 'B' production, 29 Oct 2014

This review is from: L'elisir D'amore: Balthasar Neumann Choir (Heras-Casado) [Blu-ray] [2014] (Blu-ray)
The setting is, for me, distracting and fragmented. I'd rather just listen to the cd. Rolando's facial gymnastics are quite painful. It's hard to believe any girl would fall for such a character as is portrayed. Love his voice nevertheless and Miah Persson is a delight to see and hear. She sings and acts well and not overly dramatic. The whole thing makes me want to see a more traditional production.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good production and singers - Bad sound (Blu-ray 2014 - NOT DVD 2005), 10 Dec 2014
This review is from: L'elisir D'amore: Balthasar Neumann Choir (Heras-Casado) [Blu-ray] [2014] (Blu-ray)
I like this opera. I somehow like Villazón production, even if it's a bit weird. I like most singers (Persson, Villazón, D'Arcangelo, Mühlemann) and mostly I love Miah Persson's Adina.
But the Blu-Ray sound is awful. The opera, the production, the singers deserve a much better sound mix, color, depth. Sometimes singers are badly drowned out by the orchestra. For some singers (namely sopranos) sound is squeezed into a narrow frequency band, with very unpleasant effect. Maybe microphones didn't work well, or sound settings were off. What happened ?
The result is really poor... too bad, really too bad!

PS: not sure my previous review is still online...

1.0 out of 5 stars Ghastly - why not stay with the brilliant version with Netrebko and Villazon rather than this new ..., 27 Sep 2014

Ghastly - why not stay with the brilliant version with Netrebko and Villazon rather than this new one with Villazon singing excellently but a terrible production by him.
