All is good except for the picture quality
on 2 June 2013
I totally concur with the positive comments others have made about the singing, conducting, set design, direction, etc. For me, the deal breaker is the picture quality. Put bluntly, it is AWFUL. Maybe I've been spoilt by the razor sharp images of blu ray and hi-def television (and for that matter, widescreen), but this looks muddy, smeary, with poor colour, etc, etc. Wagner always intended the Ring to be an equal marriage of sound and vision, and here it plain isn't. This is a huge shame because with better picture quality, this would, I think, be my favourite set.
