Poor quality video,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Puccini: Tosca - In the settings and at the times of Tosca [DVD]  (DVD)
I bought this a while ago and watched it last night. The visual definition is generally poor - awful in places, like a home video - although some scenes are sharp. Worse, the sound quality is patchy. The principal singers come across fine but some minor characters (eg Spoletta) sound as if they have been recorded in a different, more distant, room. I also found the extreme close ups unhelpful and intrusive, with the focus on the singers lips and teeth distracting. If this version has subtitles, I couldn't find them.
