For me this was disappointing. I found the sound of the audience applause about three times as loud as the performances. Although most of the music was familiar, the names of most performers were not. I'm more familiar with operetta than opera and am used to seeing much younger performers, so it was a bit of a shock to see Hansel and Gretel played with almost greying hair. That aside, the performances were O.K.

As an introduction to some of the productions on offer at Covent Garden this DVD fits the bill. However, I feel they could have included a few more excerpts from other recent productions to make it a little more varied.

Bought as a present for my father who is no longer able to get to the theatre. As intended, this was a very good substitute which he enjoyed immensely.

How can any opera goer not enjoy an evening with the Royal Opera. You may miss the excitement and the atmosphere of the live performance, but you can savour and prolong the high points with home comforts.

This was a joy to watch and listen to I played it to a group of elderly people and it was like having front seats at Coventry Garden!
