Tosca (nei luoghi e nelle ore) was filmed live in the real setting of the opera, at the times the actions would have taken place. That and a stellar cast makes this a great DVD.

What I like about this version of Peter Grimes is that Ventris makes Peter so human and nuanced rather than just a brute, and the relationship between Peter and Ellen briefly feels in the realm of the possible. I also love the set design, especially when the Borough inhabitants are on their pole "village" taking part in everyday activities.
