I'm currently watching this per YouTube's suggestion. I've always been interested in seeing this opera just out of curiosity, but I didn't have the chance to just hop on a plane and go watch it in Paris when it was being performed there in late 2013. You can skip to 11:30 if you don't want to wait for ten minutes with the audience for the performance to start, which is what I did – wait I mean – because it feels more authentic that way.
I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed that. I see that a limited edition CD+DVD box set is available in Japan for a reasonably hefty price. A single CD EU version also exists and I could acquire it for a pretty cheap price online. Both are tempting in their own way, but I think I'm going to go for the more expensive box set since I was planning to place an order on Amazon Japan very soon anyway and this way I will have no regrets that I didn't go for it when I had the chance.
