Wagner: The Ring Cycle

 (2008)

Wagner: The Ring Cycle Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

No synopsis for Wagner: The Ring Cycle.

For more about Wagner: The Ring Cycle and the Wagner: The Ring Cycle Blu-ray release, see Wagner: The Ring Cycle Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.



Wagner: The Ring Cycle Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

All four of these operas sport clean and crisp 1.78:1 images with an AVC encode. The bulk of the complete Ring is cast in various shades of blues and grays, as you will notice from many of the screenshots. At other times, the piece is rather oppressively dark, as befits its subject matter. Black levels and contrast are extremely strong throughout the many hours of the story. When brighter purples and reds are offered they pop accordingly and flesh tones are always accurate. Detail is extremely precise, so much so that pores are easily visible on faces and the hair on the children's arms and legs can be seen quite easily. There are no crushing or blooming artifacts throughout this 1080i live presentation. That said, there's nothing here that screams "high definition," so videophiles may be underwhelmed by this Ring.


Wagner: The Ring Cycle Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Luckily, the sonic side of things is where this Ring shines, and shine it does. Both the DTS HD-MA 5.1 and PCM 2.0 mixes are brilliant, though you'll want to stick with the 5.1 for its added live ambience and the brilliance it provides to the orchestral accompaniment. Hearing Wagner's overpowering orchestrations in an environment this immersive can be daunting, to say the least, but the DTS mix is astoundingly sharp and clear, bringing a gorgeous warmth to brass tones, so important throughout the four works. As noted, there are some volume issues in the softer sections of Walküre which bothered me perhaps more than they will other listeners. Overall, balance issues are handled exceedingly well, with all singers miked properly and easily cutting through the protean orchestral forces. I can't highly recommend the orchestral playing and St. Clair's conducting highly enough. This is a most impressive Ring from a musical standpoint and the DTS soundtrack supports that with impressive fortitude.
