UMKC Opera Videos for Cast Members
Please Note: The purchase-page links below are not for open orders.
These pages were provided as a convenience intended to allow the cast members (and families) to order copies of their performances.
Please respect that because I don't have any good way to check on you if you purchase one of these videos from me.
Not that there has ever been a rush on anything but these are "in-the-family" videos, so to speak. Thank you.

Videos above were shot in "HiDef" (HD) with a 16:9 (wide) screen ratio
Videos below were shot in "standard def" (SD) with a 4:3 screen ratio
The actual DVD is always standard def (720x480 resolution). Depending on your player and/or television, those DVDs with wide screen formats may be "upscaled" to 1920x1080. Upscaling does not actually increase resolution but instead creates new pixels between recorded pixels to fill out the picture to resemble actual BluRay or HiDef file output.
4:3 (720x480 standard def)
The works below were shot with standard definition (SD) digital equipment (4:3 screen ratio)
