To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My favorite Opera …… this one first filmed in 1992 contains Placido Domingo at his peak performing in all the actual locations that it is set in , in Rome …… 4:3 format …… DVD quality ….. cheap cardboard covers ……. The picture fits my screen by selection , the picture is quite good and well lit ……. I adapted the covers to a proper bluray box ……. All is now perfect for me ?
This is a DVD of a live relay in the actual settings in Rome performed in one 24 hour period at the times in the libretto. I saw it at the time and it was an exciting project & a brilliant performance. It's great to have this on DVD.
Great singing, fine acting, fascinating authentic locations. Far superior to the usual DVDs of stage productions. It did though bring to mind Jonathan Miller’s underrated production set in wartime Rome. Strongly recommended.
An excellent production, filmed at the actual locations in Rome where the scenes were set. The singing and orchestration are first class. I remember seeing this when it was originally televised internationally. It's good to own the DVD now.
A very good setting for TOSCA. The music is magnificent whereas the words are old fashion ( though faithful to the libretto): easier to understand for an Italian -born individual. I would recommend to a prospective buyer.
