I Just Can't Get Into WagnerMay 20 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
I really can't give a fair review of theis BR Disk. I have never cared much for Wagner's operas. I like his orchestral highlights, but the vocal music just bores me to death. I realize that the fault is mine and not Wagner's.
I purchased this disc because it was inexpensive and I thought it might help change my mind...It didn't.
To me the story line is confusing and off the wall. I could not follow the vocal line as I can in most Italian and some German operas; the costumes seemed absurd, the sets the same.
The video quality and sound were both very good.I cannot give a valid opinion of the vocal and orchestral performance becaue I was unable to get past ActI and I am totally unfamiliar with the vocal aspects of the music.
As I said, the fault is probably mine, but Wagnerian opera is just not for me.....
