Opus Arte has published several samplers before, and this title is a continuation of that marketing effort. Glyndebourne is probably the most important small opera house in the world. The excerpts in this title come from previous Opus Arte Blu-ray releases of full Glyndebourne productions. Many of these are among the best opera videos ever made, and we have reviewed most if not all of them elsewhere on this site. This likely would be an excellent disc for someone who is just dipping his toes in the waters of Ocean Opera, unsure if he wants to take a full plunge. Released 2014, Blu-ray disc has 5.1 dts-HD Master Audio sound. Grade: NA
