Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway

 (2008)

Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Set in New York City's gritty East Village, the revolutionary rock opera Rent tells the story of a group of bohemians struggling to live and pay their rent. "Measuring their lives in love," these starving artists strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness and the AIDS epidemic. Rent is based on Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer and Tony Award winning musical, one of the longest running shows on Broadway.

Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

"Rent Filmed Live on Broadway" dances onto the Blu-ray format in a stunning 1080p/AVC encode, framed at a screen filling 1:78:1 aspect ratio. Shot in high definition, images are clean as a whistle with absolutely no film related issues to be found. Colors are vivid and lush, but never over saturated or neon-like in intensity. Black levels are extremely deep while never obscuring detail of any kind. With black levels this impressive, contrast right on the money and vivid colors, the resulting picture is presented with astounding dynamic range and punch. Fine detail is perfectly rendered, Mimi shaking glitter from her hair during 'Out Tonight,' fabrics used in clothing, beads of sweat, even the actors unintentionally spitting while they sing; it's all intricate and extremely impressive, visually. In addition, the makeup artists on this production deserve sincere congratulations for obscuring the stage makeup that is normally overkill when viewed in high definition. Here, we see each unique skin-tone from each of the actors with stunning clarity. This Blu-ray disc epitomizes the strengths of high definition on complex and challenging material.


Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I was a little less impressed with the audio on this disc than I was with the video. Presented in 5.1 Dolby TrueHD at 24/48khz, the track lacks immediacy and punch, but accurately represents the tonal qualities of a small musical band. The audio is not lacking in dynamics; the score shifts between quieter moments and full out blasting rock and roll. The band does sound like it is recorded in the far-field, lacking the immediacy one would hear in a close miked setup. One certainly experiences the raw sound of a raw performance, untouched, not enhanced or sweetened in any way. Imaging is excellent across the frontal sound stage, with the surrounds contributing a bit of ambience, the audience reaction and sound effects. Sound field depth is fair, back wall phantom imaging is very good and side wall phantom imaging virtually existent. Vocals are dynamically limited, but this is common in a production of this kind and should not be looked at as negative. Bass is tight and balanced in the mix, but fails to dig deeply in frequency and depth. Overall, I found the mix to be well-balanced; the trade-offs and compromises that where made to record the performance still present a pleasing audio experience.
