This DVD should have never been released. Buy it only if:

1. You have memorized the lyrics to Pinafore
2. You are adept at lip reading
3. You like to listen to songs sung in the distance

Apparently the actors are not miked, and the sound engineer was asleep at the switch. The chorus comes through loud and clear, but individual actors are quite muffled and indistinct. Patter is impossible, and what is G&S without patter?

If I could have given this a minus 2 stars, I would have. Watched less than 15 minutes for a rental fee of 2.99. Terrible sound quality unless all you want to hear is the orchestra. The high note, if there was one, was an acknowledgement of all members of the orchestra.

I had never even heard of this before catching it on PBS last month. As a previous reviewer mentioned, some of the songs are a little hard to understand, but to be fair, you have to understand it is a play, not a movie. I had no problems understanding the story, even if I missed one out of every ten words, just as I would have if I'd been in the audience. The plot was hilarious and the actors so much fun to watch. I am definitely looking for a dvd to own.

This is a fantastic piece and had a fantastic cast. However, it was a one-camera version of a student play, so the sound was uneven and it was difficult to hear a lot of the dialog. Just know that it's not a professional production. The lights wash out the face and some of it's hard to hear, but it is the old favorite songs anyway, and much of it well-sung.
