Orpheus in the Underworld and A Night on the Town in February
Metrodome Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Jacques Offenbach's musical masterpiece Orpheus in the Underworld for 21st February 2005 priced at £15.99. Released as part of the Ovation series which is bringing classics to the screen, this masterful and colourful operetta, first produced in 1858, is brought to life on screen in a vibrant and solid interpretation by the BBC Concert Orchestra. The DVD features performances from renowned actors, Denis Quilley, Christopher Gable and Honor Blackman, who highlight Offenbach's outrageously funny 'send-ups' of Greek mythology. The BBC Concert Orchestra recreates the raucous atmosphere, and the DVD includes a superb scene of the legendary Can-Can tune complete with dancing girls.
Metrodome Films have also announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of A Night on the Town for 21st February 2005 priced at £15.99. A dazzling colour production, this toe-tapping and heart-warming classic features songs and music from the finest songwriters of the 20th century. Hits like 'Lets Do It', 'Puttin On The Ritz' and 'I've Got You Under My Skin'.
