This was a gift for my wife, who has seen several of the operas in this box set at the Verona Arena in Italy. She has only watched the Madame Butterfly DVD so far but the disc skipped and froze badly. We returned the set and the replacement disc also skipped and froze so we wrote it off as a manufacturing defect and decided to keep it and live with it. My wife also said the opera was edited and shortened, which was not noted anywhere on Amazon or on the packaging. She loved the performance though: so,5 stars for the (trimmed) performance but the discs themselves only get 2.

While Verona is known to be mostly above the political fray that plagues Italian productions, it is still not immune to the name recognition plague that locks listeners into years of sub-standard singers using rinse and repeat tactics. The conducting is worth the price of admission though...
