A great effort by *almost* everyone
15 October 2002 | by (Manchester NH) – See all my reviews

First, let me preface my comments by noting that 25% of my music collection is Philip Glass music, so I was naturally predisposed to love it even before I saw it.

The composition is top notch of course, the performers were excellent, the choir went above and beyond what a typical choir is called upon to do ... but it is live theater, so you will see a few "mistakes". I wont point them out here, because if you don't notice them, all the better for you.

There are however two occasions in the recordings where a choir or cast member would go out of tune. As these are professional singers, I assume it was because they couldn't hear themselves on stage. Oh well, blame it on 1983.

Advice: turn the subtitles off. By intent, the subtitles don't line up with the sanskrit. The subtitles basically just give you the entire text in a lump sum. It's a very distracting way to dole out the lyrics, but eventually they leave you alone to enjoy the music.
