Similarly to what another reviewer or two have said, the show was good but could have been better. It's not the fault of the ladies in the show; it was the editing and technical crews who are mostly to blame. I've followed Celtic Woman from the very beginning so I can't help but interject a somewhat more in-depth evaluation than my peers.
There is an incessant compulsion (by Celtic Woman's video editor) to chop the performances into bits, in order to show the people in the audience `singing along', bobbing theirs heads, swaying to the music, clapping, holding sleeping children, smiling, or simply gazing out catatonically, none of which adds anything to the event and seriously impedes the continuity of the show. Over time I have become a little desensitized to this video editing chaos, but it still annoys me because it's so obvious, and the girls in the show deserve better. In this show, which is less than an hour long, there are (by my count) 121 edits taking us to these interjected shots of the audience. That's NOT a typo; it was one hundred and twenty one times in less than an hour! Let me make a point right here. I have been to several of their concerts and NEVER ONCE have I looked around at the people sitting next to me, to watch them singing along or bobbing their heads in tempo with the music. Why should I be forced to, when watching them on TV!
There are also (by my count) 45 shots of director David Downs where he is unquestionably, yet pointlessly, being made the focus of a camera shot. To his credit there are also opportunities when he is fittingly given deserved camera coverage, at points where the piano accompaniment is worthy of being the focal point. But what gives? Why do we need an additional 45 superfluous close-ups?
I'm pleased, (in fact ecstatic!

The music was fine and enjoyable, but the presentation was horrible. The director/editor let his ego get in the way of showing the viewers what the performers were doing. The program had tremendous performers in terms of talent; the music chosen was very appropriate for the occassion; and the staging and lighting was exceptional. The director/editor showed absolutely no respect for any of these aspects. I was subjected to hard cuts throughout (not one dissolve, roll focus or other appropriate technique). Through every piece there were multiple shots of the audience which was a major distraction. No sensitivity or respect was given to the music or the performers. I retired after 42 years in the TV business directing, operating equipment and videographing. I have seen products better than this coming out of a basic directing class. Celtic Woman is a very talented, professional group performing exceptional music. The next time Celtic Woman puts out another DVD, please choose a director/editor who is professional and will give the show the proper respect it richly deserves.

I would have given a 4 or 5 star rating except for two reasons. This is with the caveat that I enjoyed the original Celtic Woman ensemble. First, while I understand it's an artist prerogative to interpret a song as they feel, I felt the song l "Auld Lang Syne" was butchered. The second reason was that it was unnecessary to see the conductor in every other shot. It was ok to pan occasionally pan to the audience to show how much they're enjoying the performance. But more concentration should have been placed on the performers.

Wow! Finally, Celtic Woman has given us a DVD in high definition and it is wonderful. The photography in the Blu-Ray version, when compared to that of "Songs From the Heart," is like night and day. The colors and clarity are absolutely awesome. This was long overdue and is well worth the extra cost.. What a pleasure to see Meav back in the cast, she looked and sounded absolutely beautiful. All in all it was a most enjoyable experience with one small exception. This was a Christmas program attended by lots of small children, the songs were Christmas carols, it was a family atmosphere. Whoever talked Mairead into wearing that dress during the first part of the program should be fired. Mairead is my favorite, she is absolutely lovely and I consider her to be the world's greatest musician, however, she does not need to be prancing around the stage with her bare legs showing all the way to her waist in that particular environment. I know her routine requires a costume modification in order to move around the stage freely but the dress she wore in the second half allowed that yet was far more suitable in that Christmas environment. The hit of the show, however, was Susan. She has really blossomed.. What a wonderful performance. And as usual, Lisa was rock solid and beautiful as ever.
