  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
As with Richard Wagner

DVD Picture:
The 1.78:1 DVD is not anamorphically enhanced but exhibits good quality and should surely please fans of opera. Colors are rich and well balanced, especially the scarlet set and costumes. Blacks are deep and solid. Images are generally sharp, but shots of the full stage are slightly smeared. Overall, the picture is satisfying. (Suzanne Hodges)
