Purcell: Dido & Aeneas

 (2009)

Purcell: Dido & Aeneas Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Dido and Aeneas arrives courtesy of Opus Arte with a generally fine 1080i/AVC encoded transfer. This is not an eye popping piece of theater, which may lead some viewers to conclude that the Blu-ray itself lacks definition. Told largely in hues of gray and brown, and with very little stagecraft involved, there isn't a lot here that pops off the screen and screams "high definition spectacular"! And yet, there is abundant fine detail here, in such things as Sarah Connolly's long hair and some of the elegantly spare costumes. Contrast is strong and consistent and black levels are similarly excellent. This will not knock anyone's socks off from a high def standpoint, but it is a strong and completely clear transfer, providing an accurate reproduction of a very lean staging.


Purcell: Dido & Aeneas Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

As is usual with these excellent Opus Arte releases, we are treated to crystal clear LPCM 5.1 and 2.0 soundtracks. As with the physical production, Purcell's music itself is smaller scale than typical opera fans may be used to, but it is delivered with really stunning clarity here, especially in the continuo sections, where each individual instrument rings through the front channels with amazing clarity. This is a sound world full of abundantly sharp, high frequencies in such instruments as the theorbo and harpsichord, and the 5.1 rendering presents them with a transparence and lack of brittleness which is very appealing. The singing is also magnficent, if the florid melismas make understanding some of the words a bit challenging (though there are optional English subtitles which help in that regard). The 2.0 fold down is actually more appealing than these stereo mixes often are by virtue of the opera's smaller scale instrumentation. While I personally found the 5.1 preferable, at least in terms of hall ambience and better separation, my hunch is few people will complain at all about the stereo option.
