Opus Arte is planning a late January US arrival for its latest high art HD DVD release, 'Strauss: Die Fledermaus.'
Originally released on HD DVD in the UK early last year, Opus Arte has set a January 29 stateside debut for this BBC production of Strauss' famed comedic operetta, which includes performances and music from the The Glyndebourne Chorus and London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.
The complete 196-minute program will be presented on a single HD-30 dual-layer disc, in 1080i/VC-1 video and offering audio flavors in Dolby TrueHD 5.0 Surround and 2.0 Stereo.
Extras include interviews with the cast, multiple still galleries highlighting the costumes and stage design, and two featurettes, one on the building and architecture of Glyndebourne’s new opera house, and the second a BBC feature on the Waltz.
Retail for the HD DVD has been set at a suggested price of $39.99.
