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.

Hard to express how disappointing this was. I wanted to introduce this great piece to my children and they just hated it. Only because I love the show and know it well was I able to understand any of the lyrics. It's really a home video of what was probably a very good amateur production, but it's not worthy of sale or rental but to the members of the cast.

This is community theater from Madison, Wisconsin, a pleasant attempt but by no means professional. The orchestra is quite good, the singers fair, but the recording and video range from poor to amateurish. Most of the video is from afar and it sounds like there was one mic at a distance; very indistinct. It should not be on Amazon.

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.

Very poor audio and video quality, photography and lighting like an amateur. Costumes, props and singing seemed good, but there was so much distortion in the "tape sound" that many words were lost on my high-end hifi system.

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.

Like watching a high school production videotaped by somebody's mom sitting in the back of the auditorium. This is a real dog... too bad I can't give it zero stars
