Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Thea Sharrock's irresistible new production of Shakespeare's popular romantic comedy stirs wit, sentiment, intrigue and love into a charming confection which challenges the traditional rules of romance. At its heart, a feisty but feminine Rosalind (Naomi Frederick), in love with the endearingly naïve Orlando (Jack Laskey), uses her disguise as Ganymede to counsel him playfully in the art of wooing. Distraction is provided by Dominic Rowan, a remarkably funny Touchstone, and Tim McMullan, whose sonorous tones are perfectly suited to the lugubrious wit of Jaques. Filmed in High Definition and true surround sound.

Extra features: Cast gallery and Famous Speeches

Press Reviews

"...Opus Arte has been leading the way in high-def presentations of opera, ballets and concert fare throughout the Blu-ray era, and it's wonderful that they are now branching out to include these marvelous live performances from Shakespeare's Globe Theater. Encoded via AVC and delivered in a 1080i "live" transfer with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio, this is a sharp and colorful As You Like It which transports the television viewer right into the action a lot of the time. Detail is largely exceptional throughout this presentation, with the wonderful period costumes almost revealing their stitch work in some of the close-ups. There is some extremely minor and very passing artifacting in some of the heavily brocaded and patterened women's costumes, but that's the only negative issue to report. Otherwise, we have a splendidly colorful presentation, with accurate flesh tones, very pleasing contrast and black levels, and a really sharp and well detailed image..." -- Blu-ray.com - Jun 29, 2010

In peaking of The Bard, The Shakespeare's Globe series continues from OpusArte and this time, the classic is As You Like It. As noted before, this takes place at a theater that is exactly like the kind the author originally constructed to present his endless series of classics. This has been issued in separate Blu-ray and DVD editions. I liked it, but did not love it, yet it is much of how it would have been in its original performances and that has an element of authenticity to it that makes it work in ways you would not suspect, especially in its comedy. -Nicholas Sheffo -- "i"Fulvue Drive-In
