No Subtitles?
Ace duLieber (Bainbridge Island, WA) 10/18/2014 5:59 PM
I was surprised to discover that the featured Program and the two bonus scenes have no subtitles available for the lyrics. it makes me wonder if this was a DVD production glitch. Of course ardent opera lovers may not need the subtitles, but those of us who are more casual viewers are left out. I would otherwise have rated this DVD 4 stars.
