This review is from: Massenet Cendrillon [DVD]  [NTSC] (DVD)
This is a nice performance of a rare opera. Brussels mounted the same production end of 2011 with a better cast and with a better conductor, who assured that their performance was much more sparkling as the version from London that is on this DVD. The Brussels performance was filmed and was streamed on the website of La Monnaie. Hopefully this will get a blu-ray release also.
The technical quality of this Virgin Classics DVD is not great. Still puzzles me why EMI keeps releasing their production just on DVD and not on the far superior medium of blu-ray. The master is not the problem in this case, as cinema showings and HD broadcasts have proven. A missed opportunity.
Let's hope that the Brussels version will be released on blu-ray!
