Robert Benson, August 2010

This DVD is a live performance from Teatro Regio in Turin in 2008, the first time Edgar has been presented in the original four act version since the premiere—so now we hear the extended final act. It is a fine performance, particularly from Julia Gertseva as Tigrana in the composer’s only role for contralto. What is truly outstanding about this release is video/audio quality. In the Blu-Ray version, color and definition are truly extraordinary, and the 7.1surround sound could not be bettered. Should you wish to experience early Puccini very well performed, this is for you.
