Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Nutcracker pirouhettes onto Blu-ray with a very sharp looking AVC encoded transfer in 1080i and 1.78:1. This is in fact one of the nicer looking ballet Blu-rays that we've had from Opus Arte, which almost always does such a splendid job with its classically oriented BD releases. Here we're treated to a wonderful amount of fine detail and some especially lovely color, brilliantly saturated and robust. This is a really sumptuous physical production, and the Blu-ray offers a lot of detail in the gorgeous costumes, which run the gamut from pastel colors to vibrant primary colors, and the very evocative background paintings. Close-ups reveal a wealth of detail in both costumes and the dancers themselves. Some of the animal costumes are very whimsical, and every whisker on the Mouse King's head can be counted. Black levels and contrast are very strong throughout this presentation.


Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There's nothing really egregiously horrible about either of the lossless tracks on this Blu-ray, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and an LPCM 2.0, so don't get too worried about my score and comments here. But after having been reviewing so many of the fine classical releases by Opus Arte and some of the other labels distributed by Naxos, I've perhaps developed more of an ear for very slight differences in quality. While there's nothing innately wrong with the recording here, there are some balance issues when individual instruments play that I can't help but wonder about. These are especially noticeable right off the bat in the Overture, when the flute and clarinet solos can barely be heard above the orchestral mass. If you can get past this transitory issue, you're left with a very solid, if not exactly exciting, reading of this score, presented with wonderful fidelity and clarity, and extremely expressive dynamic range. The entire spectrum of frequencies sound exquisite here, with some thundering lows in the brass and tympani and nice hall ambience from the near perfect acoustics of the Royal Opera House pit.
