4.0 out of 5 stars FINE PRODUCTION, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aida 3D (Verona) [Hui Je, Marco Berti, Andrea Ulbrich, Gianfranco De Bosio] [Opus Arte: OABD7122D] [Blu-ray] [2013] [NTSC] (Blu-ray)
I'm very familiar with this opera as I've seen it live a few times and also owned various DVDs and Blu Ray versions. I also had the pleasure of watching a live production in Verona in the 90's.
I bought this disc because I wanted to see how it worked in 3D and I wasn't disappointed. The sets come out at you and you feel the depth.
It's an open air production staged in the 3000+ years old Roman arena, however the sound is respectable. You notice the line of mics at the front of the stage used to record this. I thought the choir's sound was a bit muffled but the principals were spot on. I recommend listening in DTS mode.
At the beginning of Act 1 a white stray cat can be seen backstage but he makes a noiseless exit, unperturbed by Aida and Radames singing to each other. Luckily the singers were not distracted as the feline was behind them!
All in all an enjoyable live production filmed in glorious 3D.
