Excellent in every respect!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Verdi: Rigoletto -- Vienna/Chailly [DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)
I consider this DVD to be one of the best in my collection. This is a must have for anyone who likes opera shot on location. Making use of the visual splendour of the locations where the story actually takes place, shows the full potential of the medium DVD. That is why I also like the Bizet's Carmen version with Placido Domingo and Julia Migenes-Johnson, which has been shot in the beautiful scenery of Spain. This Rigoletto is also excellent in every other respect. The superb singing and acting (especially the acting of Ingvar Wixell as Rigoletto) do really make Verdi's drama come to live. The many famous melodies do the rest. Unless you really prefer the limitations of a theater performance, you will not be disappointed.
