In my opinion, A Night at the Opera represented the apotheosis of Queen's artistic and bombastic style of rock. Sure, you can argue that Queen had yet to produce their signature arena anthems and pop standards, but this blu-ray captures the moment in time that Queen proved that they were going to change music. I love that this concert still gives heavy emphasis to the first three Queen records, something that was sorely lacking in their later concerts as their library of recordings expanded. The sound of the band is tight and controlled. The video recording, for the era, is good. I also like that this is video sticks to the basics of live recording. No fancy and annoying edits, fades or effects, which seemed to burden video recordings of the time. Just a band on a stage with the camera where you need it, when you need it, to capture the essence of the performance. This is one I will go back to again and again when I need a shot of nostalgia.
