3.0 out of 5 stars IS IT REALLY SOMETHING GOOD?, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sound of Music Live! [DVD] [2013] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
All say they are delighted with this ''preserved version'' of THE SOUND OF MUSIC, a magical musical by magical R & H, but I want to point out that I have not liked at all what nowadays seems helas a duty: that is to change, adapt and/or cut the material which is much, much, again: much better in its original form. This production is elegant and has nice moments but I do prefer to listen to the original cast album with Mary Martin or watch the Julie Andrews film and, for a conclusion, let me speak à la Cole Porter saying that I hereby declare, from tiptoe to hair, this couldn't compare to those ... don't let my opinion change yours. THE SOUND OF MUSIC is a gem to make people happy, isn't it? So be happy anyway.
I am always fighting for the original form of musicals and here I think I must say that I am very grateful to Encores! of New York City Center for resurrecting musicals that way: I have enormous praise for their aim.
Friendly yours, Ernesto
