Stravinsky: The Rake's Progress Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Rake's Progress is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Opus Arte with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1. The wonder here is not that there's occasional moiré and aliasing, but that there is so amazingly little of it, considering the incredible cross-hatched, close-cropped patterns that are on display in virtually every moment of this production. (A cursory review of the screencaps included with this review will show just how ubiquitous these patterns really are in this production.) Hockney's backgrounds are full of cross-hatched lines and parallel lines, as are his costumes, and it's rather astonishing that these elements present few if any problems in resolving correctly, and intead remain steadfast, stable and brilliantly sharp and clear. Where moiré and aliasing do crop up, they tend to afflict some of the non cross-hatched costumes, including a natty Houndstooth jacket that Tom wears early in the opera. This is overall a brilliantly sharp and clear presentation with gorgeously saturated colors and often impeccable fine detail, detail which helps bring out every nuance of Hockney's astounding production design.


Stravinsky: The Rake's Progress Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Rake's Progress offers two lossless audio options, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix and an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo fold down. This is one of Stravinsky's most colorful and at times achingly lyrical (if typically astringent) scores, and both of these lossless tracks present the full panoply of Stravinsky's elegant orchestration in full sonic splendor, with superb fidelity and some nicely varied dynamic range. Balance between the London Philharmonic Orchestra (under the very capable baton of Vladimir Jurowski) and the principal cast is excellent for the most part, and the ensemble singing of The Glyndebourne Chorus is likewise crisp and clear. Stravinsky's convoluted vocal lines make deciphering some of the English libretto more than a bit hard at times, though there are optional English subtitles (as well as several other languages) to help make out the words.
