Operavox is incredible!
7 February 2009 | by jkrussSee all my reviews

All the operas are condensed versions redone in the English language. "The Magic Flute", "Das Rheingold" and "Turandot" are done in traditional animation style. "Carmen" has a morphed look to it that seems to have first filmed live actors and then an animation was layered over the actors to give it a very different look. My favorites are "The Barber of Seville" and "Rigoletto" that are done with puppets and sets that are visually incredible! WARNING: True to the plots in the operas there are adult themes that show murder and sex and is not appropriate for young children. This DVD is now out of print but copies are available for rent from companies like Netflix or for for purchase at a very expensive price. Worth watching!
