    Great show

    This is a very nice performance of one of the most popular French operas. Shirley Verrett is in excellent voice. She makes Dalila regal and seductive. Placido Domingo puts on his usual wonderful show. The SF chorus and orchestra do very well, and the ballet is impressive. Conductor Julius Rudel gives a short talk before each act. The sound is very good, but the picture is fuzzy and colors are muted. The subtitles are on whether you want them or not. Most DVDs let you shut them off if you don't want them, but not this one.
