This is not an easy review. There are some real issues with this performance and especially with the DVD quality! I expect more in quality from DECCA.
1) I am very disappointed with the Video part of this production. The picture just fills only 3/4 of my HD screen. Definition is very poor with many blurring problems. When singers in bright costumes move too fast a ghostly blur follows them. Lighting is far too dark at times and one can barely see the singers at times. This is picturewise a less than good video recording. In fact I have some private DVDS with much better picture and sound production.
2) The Sound Quality is not that great either. It's muffled or muted much of the time. The excellent Weiner Philharmoniker is too much in the background.
3) The Sets are okay; just not inspired. Set changes often are way too long and the viewer sits in his/her living room in total darkness and wonders if the DVD is having problems or has stopped. These long pauses are very distracting and should have been edited out.
4) The stage directing is very weak and at times none exsistent. Too many times a character enters and just "parks and barks." Tamino often runs in turns and sings with no motivation. The poor Queen in both arias gets no help from the director. In the first her costume sabotages her...her qown is the set. In the second she just stands there and sings to the Conductor. Luciana Serra deserved better than this. The three ladies just do traffic patterns for no apparent reason and with nonexistant motivation.
5) Some of the costumes just work, some work(the priests) and some are outright disasters. Tamino's and Pamina's are very bad. My Grandmother has better "house dresses" than Tamino's feminine rags.
