Distractions Wrong period setting,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart: Le Nozze Di Figaro [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
At the beginning the singer seems more intent on messing about with a pair of boots - This goes on for too long. I do not like operas that are set in a period after the composer is long dead. The genuine period is always best.

I'm a little perplexed. Are you saying that nobles didn't wear boots in the eighteenth century, or that their valets didn't "mess" with them? What period do you feel this production sets the opera that qualifies as "after the composer is long dead." It certainly isn't Eurotrash - or did you find it so?

Are you sure you watched this wonderful production of Le Nozze beyond the first 10 minutes ? Focusing on boots when you have Miah Persson, Gerald Finley, Dorothea Röschmann, Erwin Schrott as gorgeous singers and actors in one of the most beautiful operas ever, is quite ... uncommon, to say the least !!
