Oklahoma!

 (TV) (1999)

Oklahoma! Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

This vibrant new production of the classic stage musical is marvelously brought to life by a stellar cast that features the charming Hugh Jackman as Curly, vivacious Josefina Gabrielle as Laurey, menacing Shuler Hensley in his Tony Award-winning role as Jud and British favorite Maureen Lipman as Aunt Eller. Declared by London theater critics as the all-time best version of OKLAHOMA! ever brought to the stage, the musical was directed by Broadway great Trevor Nunn (LES MISERABLES, SUNSET BOULEVARD) and choreographed by the gifted Susan Stroman (director/choreographer of THE PRODUCERS).

For more about Oklahoma! and the Oklahoma! Blu-ray release, see Oklahoma! Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Director: Trevor Nunn
Writer: Oscar Hammerstein II
Starring: Maureen Lipman, Hugh Jackman, Shuler Hensley, Peter Polycarpou

Oklahoma! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

A hallmark of this version of Oklahoma! was the curved set by production (and costume) designer Anthony Ward, which was intended to suggest the expansive horizon of the new territory that the characters in the story had only recently settled. The show's pastoral colors were suggested by Hammerstein's lyrics with such phrases as the "bright golden haze on the meadow". Director Nunn didn't attempt to improve on his success, merely to re-create it for the cameras with the help of veteran TV cinematographer Paul Wheeler. Detailed information regarding the shooting format was unavailable, but it is obvious from the "making of" documentary, as well as the appearance of the finished product and the date of production, that the project was shot on film.

The image on Image's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is film-like and detailed, with a softness that should not be mistaken for lack of definition. Digitally sharp edges would create the wrong impression for this production, which was lit for a gently nostalgic sensation, even when darker themes intrude. When Nunn wanted to convey darkness, he used actual darkness. Occasions for deep black and trailing shadows are rare, but when they occur, the Blu-ray is equal to the task. The various lighting shifts that signal changes in mood and emotional tone are effectively conveyed, as are the subtle changes in color palette, some of which register only subliminally. Image has used a BD-50, allowing the compressionist plenty of room to deal with the extensive dancing sequences, which require high bitrates and have been well accommodated here, without artifacts.

A noticeable falloff in visual quality occurs during the end credits, which scroll over the curtain call. This portion of the program does not appear to have been rescanned for Blu-ray, because the image behind the credits is considerably less detailed. If nothing else, it makes you appreciate the quality of the rest of the film.


Oklahoma! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The only soundtrack on the Blu-ray is a lossless stereo track encoded as DTS-HD MA 2.0. Image's previous DVD of Oklahoma! offered a choice between DD 5.1 and DD 2.0. Why the Blu-ray contains no 5.1 track is a good question, but it's one for which I have no answer. This is not the first time we have encountered such a sonic "rollback" in the move from DVD to Blu-ray, and it's possible that the source materials were not available from which to create a proper lossless 5.1 encode. However, this is pure speculation on my part.

In any case, the lossless stereo track provides a fine reproduction of the orchestra and vocals, with clarity, wide dynamic range and a general sense of presence that fills the listening space. The sound mixers have made the odd choice to treat the sound as if it were almost disembodied, an effect not unlike that experienced in a typical contemporary Broadway theater, where aggressive miking places the singers' voices throughout the listening space and diminishes the sensation that the voices emanate from the bodies on stage. You may find this jarring at first, but you will quickly adjust to it, as people do in the theater. (Try reducing the volume for the first ten minutes, then raising it again.)
