Magical production spoilt by gimicky camera work,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Massenet's Werther (Jonas Kaufmann, Sophie Koch) [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
Highly enjoyable performance which for me was spoilt by the infuriating shots of what was happening backstage. Anybody looking to buy as a memento of the current performances at Covent Garden should be aware that whilst the production is essentially the same, on the DVD the transition scene between Acts III & IV is handled differently and the whole magical effect is lost. See it live if you can.
