a real treat,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Die Tote Stadt [Klaus Florian Vogt, Camilla Nylund, Markus Eiche ] [Opus Arte: OA1121D] [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
This is a problematic opera to put on stage. Other productions go headlong to achieve the surreal onstage, and end up with clunking, half-baked ideas that detract from the whole. This production is carefully staged, stylish and beautiful. It radiates like the music as we are drawn into the strange sepulchre of Bruges and a lover's grief.
One to own.
