Seeing opera has changed. With the advent of sophisticated camera work, we can now see the full faces of the singers as they are performing. In 21st-century DVDs, the singers must look the part and be able to act. Furthermore, the video director can cut to other singers as the main singer performs to show their dramatic reactions. No longer are you restricted to using opera glasses to catch a glimpse of your favorite singer at a crucial moment. 21st-century DVDs are an improvement over what we can see in the opera house. Come and enjoy!
