5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Lucia On Film May 7 2004
Format:DVD
Anna Moffo in Lucia. You can't get any better than that !! The 60's opera sensation Anna Moffo has a great following and her voice is perfect for the tragic heroine Lucia. Donizetti's opera about thwarted love, forbidden romance, madness and murder in bleak Scotland is his best and most acclaimed. Anna Moffo's beauty and voice, neither which had faded at the time of this film, 1971, is enchanting. On film, this is as great opera to watch. Starring as her lover Edgardo is Lajos Kozma, a little known European tenor. Anna Moffo was American-bred but she has Italian background. If I'm not mistaken she could speak Italian fluently and at one time also had her own show on Italian television. Many will flock to the DVD of Joan Sutherland's Met performance as Lucia, long regarded as the best. But eventhough I'm a Moffo fan, here's why I think Moffo is better as Lucia.
Anna Moffo has the right look for Lucia. Her beauty provides her with a vulnerability and naivete that is appropriate for the romantic, lovesick and naive young heroine who is driven to madness. Joan Sutherland does not have any of these qualities and insteads she looks too old. This film is also very good visually. The haunting cinematography enhances the plot of the opera. The film was shot in authentic castles and moors. The fact that the movie looks dated and runs slow is not a problem. It adds to the allure of the old opera. Everything about this film is perfect. The look, the cast of singers and the orchestration. Get this if you're a fan of Anna Moffo and if you want to watch a great performance of Lucia.

4.0 out of 5 stars lovely Moffo memento Aug. 6 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
As far as opera movie goes this one is fairly good. Granted
the acting is a bit static and the cinematography and staging
rather academic however the sets (real castle, real outdoor)
and costumes are beautiful and everyone looks right for her/
his part. Anna Moffo is definetely the star - she is ravishing
to look at and a pleasure to listen to - a warm, full lyric
soprano voice with an easy top and considerable agility. Lajos
Kozma is a dashing-looking Edgardo but is plagued by a rather
tight nasal sound however he opens up as the opera goes along
and offers an eloquent final scene. Giulio Fioravanti and Paolo
Washington are sturdy performers and have no problems meeting
the vocal demands of Enrico and Raimondo. The supporting cast
is adequate but no more. All in all an enjoyable movie and
lovely memento of Anna Moffo in one of her great roles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anna Moffo is magnificent! Nov. 10 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
Moffo is stunningly lovely both vocally and visually. A must-have for fans of gorgeous singing. Everyone else in the film is rather terrible, however, from the bleating goat of a maidservant to a ridiculously effeminate-sounding tenor "hero." None of that is of importance, though, considering the glory of Anna Moffo.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible audio quality prvents form ejoying the music Feb. 6 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
Well, I got accustomed to the low quality of "Visual Artists International" videos, and would not have bought this one, if only I could get another Anna Moffo video recording of a complete opera. But what I heard here is simply below any reasonable quality standard. High notes are distorted, orchestra voices are not heard at all, everything is messed up. When they sing or play loudly and high, you just have to shut your ears. Many old archived non-restored recordings are of better quality than this one. Total waste of money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Moffo Momento July 19 2001
By operamaryc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
I was really disappointed in the casting of this video. Moffo sings beautifully in dubbing but the balance of the cast is inferior to say the least. The costumes are pretty and the castle is grand but found myself totally unmoved. The Met version with Sutherland is better in my opinion, even though I'm a fan of Moffo. Must remember it's done in 1968 style as well, and not as much good acting as some today. Nice to have to remember Moffo, however.
