Wagner: Der Ring Des Nibelungen Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Der Ring des Nibelungen is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Deutsche Grammophon with an AVC encoded 1080i transfer in 1.78:1. Met Director Peter Gelb has been trying to drag the Met into the 21st century, both with "updated" versions of classic operas (his Tosca was a major controversy in the hoity-toity world of classical music), but also with a series of high definition broadcasts piped into theaters nationally. These Ring performances were captured on high definition in performances directed for video by the top notch Gary Halvorson, who continues his excellent work with mostly fine coverage here. Halvorson occasionally opts for head scratching angles (why shoot the rainbow bridge from the side, which clearly shows the harnesses and rigging hoisting the actors upward, for example), he manages to capture a lot of the operas in great close-ups and midrange shots which pop rather well with some pleasing fine object detail. Once cameras move much further back than the pit, however, things tends to descend into fuzzy murkiness, something not helped by the fact that so much of this production is done in relative darkness. Shadow detail is negligible throughout quite a bit of this Ring, something which is manifestly obvious from several of the screencaps accompanying this review. A lot of the "machine" transformations look quite awesome in this high definition presentation. Colors are also robust and very well saturated. This isn't a slam dunk video presentation, but generally speaking it does very well, especially when Halvorson gets "up close and personal" with the large cast.


Wagner: Der Ring Des Nibelungen Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Sonically speaking, this Ring is more often than not astounding, with the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix beautifully spacious and offering sterling fidelity. Wagner fans know that the Ring presents the composer at his most overwrought and hyperbolic, and dynamic range here is incredibly wide. Brass is effulgent and wonderfully bright without ever sounding brash, and the strings and winds seem to breathe with life and energy. Best of all, the balance here between the orchestra and the singers is just about perfect all of the time. There are some occasional distractions which spill into the surrounds, including some errant coughs from audience members and what sounds like the machinery of "the machine" cranking away, but these pass quickly and don't amount to much of an overriding concern. For the record, there's also an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 track available as well.
