Wagner: Das Rheingold

 (2008)

Wagner: Das Rheingold Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Legendary conductor Zubin Mehta leads world-class Wagner singers such as Peter Seiffert, Petra-Maria Schnitzer and Matti Salminen, and promising young talents that include Jennifer Wilson (Brünnhilde), John Daszak (Loge) and Juha Uusitalo (Wotan), whom the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung hailed as a new 'Number One among the opera gods.' Equally outstanding is the Orquestra de la Comunitat Valenciana, an ensemble of top musicians hand-picked by Music Director Lorin Maazel.

For more about Wagner: Das Rheingold and the Wagner: Das Rheingold Blu-ray release, see Wagner: Das Rheingold Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Wagner: Das Rheingold Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Das Rheingold arrives from C Major and Unitel Classics with a 1080i 1.78:1 AVC encoded image. For the most part, the results are spectacular. A lot of this prelude to the Ring proper is bathed in cool blue (with the exception of Loge, who is covered with a red follow spot most of the time, befitting his fiery demeanor). Colors, while on the dark side due to minimal stage lighting, pop nicely and show suitable gradations of hue. For the most part, the incredibly intricate costumes also resolve nicely on this Blu-ray, which at times is a bit suprising, considering the closely woven patterns which dot some of the futuristic apparel. That said, Freia's cowl does devolve into shimmer pretty badly at times, but that was the only instance of really egregious artifacting I noticed throughout the near three hours of this piece. The backdrop projections are all astoundingly beautiful and really well rendered, providing some gorgeously saturated colors and some very "trippy" effects along the way. Greens and reds on these projections are especially impressive.


Wagner: Das Rheingold Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Most potential purchasers of this title are of course going to be most interested in the soundtrack, and the DTS HD-MA 7.1 mix is wonderfully evocative about 99% of the time. Mehta leads a less than world famous orchestra (one must be honest, musn't one?) through their paces with aplomb and the results are largely extraordinary. The DTS track reproduces the playing brilliantly, and offers a clarity and warmth that make Wagner's brilliant orchestrations literally glimmer with excitement. I found a couple of Mehta's tempi to be a tad on the anemic side, but overall this is a worthy addition to the Wagner catalog. The singing is uniformly excellent (though some of Alberich's sprechgesang could have been better handled). My one qualm is very occasional balance issues. You'll hear it quiet noticeably in the opening moments with the Rhinemaidens, when just so fleetingly you can't quite catch what they're singing. For the most part though, this is a wonderfully realized soundtrack supporting a top flight performance. The 2.0 folddown, which I sampled here and there, sounds just fine as well and should delight those who don't have the surround option, but my recommendation is of course to go with the 7.1 track, which offers some really compelling low end and which utilizes the surround channels quite effectively, both in terms of orchestral "spill," and, for example, in its nice discrete channel effects in the closing scenes with the offstage Rhinemaidens.
