The famous Tosca on Blu-ray
, 11 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Puccini: Tosca- In the Settings and at the Times of Tosca [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Since it was televised Live in the early '90 I have recorded this wonderful production from the TV several times. Being a great opera lover and a great Puccini fan I have also bought the original VHS and the original DVD. Lately i have decided to buy this newly issued version on Blu-ray BUT I must admit that I was disappointed on several aspects.
1. Picture quality is the same as the DVD. Nothing better.
2. The presentation is nothing to be compared with the version on DVD which is much more beautifully presented with a hard-bound booklet and a nice box.
3. The audio in this Blu-ray version is only PCM Stereo whereas the one on DVD includes 5.1 dts and 5.1 Dolby Digital.
4. The aspect ratio of the picture in the blu-ray version is 4:3 whereas in the DVD version it is 16:9 Anamorphic Wideescreen.
5. The DVD version includes interesting interviews wheras thisblu-ray version includes only the opera.
