I'm new to Opera in general but I got this Blu-ray based of general reviews. I found the music and singing simply superb and breathtaking! The audio and video recording is first rate. The costumes and set design of ancient Egypt is elaborate and eye candy for the senses. The 2.5 hours go by quick as one is lost in the music. I found myself clapping after almost each set. The soloists are powerful and first rate and the choir ensemble provides that warm background music we all love.
One thing I found a bit odd is how the disk was authored. They have the stereo track as the first default track which is not preferable if you have a multichannel audio system. Make sure you pick the 2nd track which is the multichannel 5.1 DTS-MA soundtrack and not the default stereo default track.
You'll find yourself humming a few memorable snippets after you watch this opera. I enjoyed it that much.
