Musically and production superb but why in NTSC and DD?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Albert Herring [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a superb performance of which I also have the PAL VHS and which has good colour and well above average HiFi stereo. I am thinking of the incredible difference between some of the BBC/ Glyndebourne DVDs: eg Queen of Spades: the US DVD- NTSC DD - not too bad and theUK PAL LPCM DVD, probably the best opera DVD performance, picture and audio I have seen. I have both versions as the Region 1 version was issued many, many months before the Region 2. I saw this live. It was the last note of music played in the old hall and of course, there was no room for cameras at the live performances, which means that this performance has the most perfect audio balance and production. There, a review of another DVD entirely! I think for this time only I must recommend for Albert Herring; the PAL VHS - if you have a good working machine - but make a back-up DVD, for the genuine reason that the VHS deteriorates.
