This film version was made in Italy in , just four years after the opera was staged in New York City, and it features the original Baba, the great Marie Powers, whose eccentricities included roller-skating to performances. Beverly Dame also was part of the New York cast. Has the spirit world come to punish her, or was it merely Toby, whom she treats abusively? Unable to get an answer this question, she retreats to the bottle. At the end of the opera, startled from her stupor, she shoots the banished Toby, mistaking him for ghost.

For the movie, the action has been opened up slightly, adding twenty minutes in length. The added scenes include a visit from Baba to Mrs. However, the first act is chopped up too much in the film, and the "Song of the Black Swan," such an effective Act One finale, is weakened by having the long search for Baba delay it.

It reminds me of both an S-and-M party and an advertisement for electrolysis. Marie Powers, who resembles Shirley Booth costumed as a bedraggled black crow, is an amazing Baba. Her contralto voice sends shivers down the spine, and as an actress, she holds nothing back. Anna-Maria Alberghetti must have been a teenager when she made this film.

Visually, the DVD transfer seems pretty good. The monaural sound is good too, but there are obvious splices and variations within the source material. The sound engineer is C. Robert Fine, who later became associated with the audiophile Mercury LP label. VAI offers the soundtrack to this film on CD, but it would be sad not to see The Medium for the completely outrageous experience that it is.

It is a great opera, and it achieves its greatness in no small measure by being completely devoid of shame, an achievement all the more apparent on this DVD. Warmly recommended! All Rights Reserved.
