4.0 out of 5 stars magnificent singing Rather poor staging, 11 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Verdi: Il Trovatore [Blu-ray] [2012] (Blu-ray)
This is a stunning performance by all the caste of singers. In particular the baritone Hvorostovsky is absolutely magnificent As usual, as usual not only is his voice superb but his acting is most convincing. My only reservation about this performance is the rather uninspired stage setting. One gets the impression that even the Metropolitan Opera is trying to save money by not giving authentic stage sets. In my opinion opera should not only be a feast for the ears but also for the eyes and while this satisfies the audio portion of the Opera in my opinion these stage sets are really rather mundane. I think that they should bring back Zeffirelli to produce the Operas;he was magnificent.having voiced this quibble I nonetheless enjoyed this version very much and certainly think that it was well worth getting.
