Barbra Streisand Live in Concert 2006 Bluray 720p [MP4-AAC](oan) image A singularly impressive concert film, a record of Barbra Streisand's 2006 tour and shot mainly during performances in Sunrise, Florida, Streisand features a phenomenal late-career performance by the singer-actress and sometimes-director, while the film of the event - codirected by Streisand as well - is both intimate and epic, capturing the excitement and synergy between artist and audience exceptionally well. The Blu-ray disc is also impressive, with excellent video and audio, some good extra features, and well-designed menu screens. The show, also known as Streisand: Live in Concert 2006 was broadcast April 25 on CBS; this network airing apparently is the reason behind the Blu-ray's delay in the U.S., as it's already available in the United Kingdom. We received a check disc for this review. (Note: Reader "tlw404" informs us that it "was delayed until June due to an arrangement with Barnes and Noble for an exclusive sale.") Full disclosure: I should say right up front that I'm not at all enamored of Barbra Streisand's movies - in both her musicals and non-musicals, in films she's directed herself and those directed by others, she tends to overwhelm with her presence, arguably sacrificing verisimilitude for the sake of what generally have been post-Classical Hollywood star-driven vehicles. There's nothing wrong with this per se - in one sense Streisand's movies were much like Marlene Dietrich's of the 1930s, or Doris Day's in the 1950s, and it would be unfair to condemn her for wanting to take as much control over her projects as she could get. But as a biopic Funny Girl has less to do with Fanny Brice than Barbra Streisand, and while movies like Yentl and Nuts certainly pleased Barbra Streisand fans, for more general audiences they're just not very credible. Streisand the concert, on the other hand, is an ideal venue, and ideally suited to the uniquely talented diva. She's clearly feeding off her fans and in return she gives them one of the best performances of her career. Sixty-four at the time, her voice is still strong if throatier (she still hits those amazing high notes on "People") and her interpretation of the songs' lyrics has the kind of maturity that can only come with age. Barbra herself jokes about getting older, though she looks great. As filmed, the program opens with the Overture from Funny Girl while onscreen there's a montage of the stage being set-up, and there are brief interviews with excited fans entering the area. (An older couple who saw her perform "Happy Days Are Here Again" when she was 17 wonder if she'll perform it again that evening. She does.) There's also a pretty incredible montage of Big Name celebrities arriving to watch the show (Oprah, Tony Bennett, Stephen Sondheim, Tom Hanks, Bill and Hillary Clinton, etc.) - including a brief glimpse of Streisand's actor-husband, James Brolin. The stage, intended to resemble a smoky nightclub, apparently, is an odd jumble of railings and platforms - it looks like where they keep the tractor beam on the Death Star, or maybe the kind of labyrinthine line you have to go through to get to those E-ticket rides at Disneyland. Streisand is backed by a full orchestra conducted by her arranger, Bill Ross. The multinational, operatic pop vocal quartet Il Divo, a somewhat annoying boy band-type group for old fogies created by Simon Cowell (yes, the) is featured on a couple of songs*, but otherwise Streisand dominates, as well she should. image The program is as follows: 01.
