The Specialist Guide To…Fantastic, flamboyant Falstaffs: #4

VERDI, G.: Falstaff (Glyndebourne, 2009) (NTSC) OA1021D
VERDI, G.: Falstaff (Glyndebourne, 2009) (Blu-ray, HD) OABD7053D

What an inspired choice it was to cast one-time rocker christopher Purves…as Glyndebourne’s most recent…Falstaff. His unusually sympathetic, deliciously acted and splendidly sung performance can be enjoyed on Blu-ray in a typically thoughtful production, set during the Second world war, by Richard Jones. with Vladimir Jurowski, Glyndebourne’s music director, on fire, this is a musical and visual treat. © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

VERDI, G.: Falstaff (Glyndebourne, 2009) (NTSC) OA1021D
VERDI, G.: Falstaff (Glyndebourne, 2009) (Blu-ray, HD) OABD7053D

The stage sets are first rate. Costumes are effective…The image quality of the Blu-Ray coding is up to standard. A chorus member writing a blog on the festival described the cast being shocked at the tell-tale accuracy of their hair on the HD monitor.
