Notes & Reviews:

"In many respects, this is an excellent production. The work is transferred to the turn-of-the-20th century... Nicky Gillibrand's costuming is excellent, and the ensemble acting is unusually good... The singing is pretty much on par with the rest... Felicity Palmer deserves special mention for her vocal and dramatic refinement... The camera work never draws attention to itself, and finds a good balance between tight close-ups and distant shots. Surround sound and stereo are provided, as well as subtitles... Visual and audio quality are topnotch. In short, this is a finely acted and sung 'Gianni Schicchi'..." -Fanfare
