I can't imagine why anyone would make an opera DVD this way. The singers are in costume with sets and props, but there's no audience, and they're lip-synching to their own studio recording. Almost everyone is overacting terribly and unnecessarily. I'm sorry to say that there's even a pie-in-the-face. The men's chorus acts like the Keystone Cops, and Jean-Luc Viala's acting is just nauseating. I'd like to see him in a role where he doesn't act like such a fool. This isn't the singers' fault, of course. Blame goes to the director, producer and whoever else was in on it. The only things that save it from total ruin are Gabriel Bacquier, whose voice is still in pretty good shape, and Catherine Dubosc in her small role. Kent Nagano and the Lyon Orchestra are okay, but I can imagine a more lively interpretation. Skip this loser and get one of the good ones I recommend below.
