This review is from: Puccini: Il Trittico [Opus Arte: OA1070D] [DVD]  [NTSC]  (DVD)
Saw this production live in the house and this dvd just gives us the close up and nuances that I missed at Covent Garden.
The problem is that Richard Jones (GENIUS DIRECTOR) has spoilt it and I do not want to see another production of this amazing piece.
Il Tabarro was hot, sweaty and raw with a bit of a sexy under current.
Soeur Angelica - well just watch it - it is unbearably heart breaking. Mme. Jaho just amazing gives it her everything.
Gianni Schicci - absolutely brilliant. Very funny and I remember in the house just throwing my arms up into the air at the last chord and joining my fellow patrons in the cheering.
Nights at the opera like this are very few and far between. I urge you but this and enjoy what will become a landmark CG production.
