Prokofiev:  War and Peace

The DVD of the Paris Opera War and Peace was released in the United States on November 18, 2003, and the 2003 release can be ordered used from some sellers at amazon.com.

A re-release of that DVD is available from amazon.com as of April 28, 2009, and from amazon.co.uk as of June 1, 2009.

"Local taste dictates that Philadelphia may never see Prokofiev's operatic adaptation of
War and Peace at the Academy of Music. But it's almost better enjoyed on DVD in a moody, visually arresting Paris production starring Opera Company of Philadelphia regular Nathan Gunn," wrote David Patrick Stearns for the Philadelphia Inquirer of September 26, 2004.
