Caravaggio Special Edition

 

Caravaggio Special Edition. The Caravaggio modern dance title as danced by the Staatsballett Berlin in 2008 was originally published in 2009 as Arthaus Item No. 101464. It has an obscure libretto, but the interesting music, dramatic lighting, all-out dancing, and fantastic video by Andreas Morell made it a hit. Our story on Caravaggio with lots of screenshots is also popular.

Now Arthaus has announced a new version called a "Special Edition" with different artwork on the package. It appears to be the same as the original recording except that it comes on a double-layer Blu-ray disc (50 GB) and has a separate CD of the music only. When I first saw this I thought maybe this would be our first 4K title. I'm still puzzled by the fact that there is no statement about the video resolution on the artwork above from the back of the keepcase. This seems like a lot of work just to add a CD. The SE Arthaus Item No. is 101795.

I plan to put this SE on the Alphalist right under the "old edition." If you want to see the screenshots, click here.
