Notes & Reviews:

This release is a BLU-RAY DISC and will not play on a standard DVD player. A standard DVD is available as BOA 1005. Opera North's enchanting staging of 'The Adventures of Pinocchio', Jonathan Dove's 21st opera, is a wittily inventive feast for the eyes and ears. A full-length, through-composed grand opera with 29 characters, a sizeable chorus and a profound symphonic score, it is overflowing with visual delights, and children will love it! A sublime achievement by Martin Duncan and team, this production shines a bright new light on Collodi's dream-like original story, full of charm, darkness and magic.
