About the DVD
This production was first presented in June, 2004, at the Paris Opera, and this recording of it was made the following month. The sets by Michael Levine and costumes by Anthony Powell are lavish and colorful, imaginative and brilliantly atmospheric. Robert Carsen directed the production and he must be afforded high praise for so vividly bringing the operatic stage in all its glories to your screen and speakers.
