Picture: A Night at the Opera gets a sending ovation for its amazing transfer. This is sourced from a brand-new 4k scan from the best available material. My goodness, what a stunning looking print. Once again, like the other WA titles this movie is pristine with no artifacts or noise. The black-and-white photography is well balanced and has a nice striking contrast which has nice depth.
Sound: Opera has a nice DTS 2.0 track. It isn't perfect and does has some unwanted background noise. This is most likely not the fault of WA but rather just the back sourced audio material. Still, the movie has a nice full sound and dialogue and music comes through strongly.
Extras: A Night at the Opera ports over the extras from the previous release and includes: Commentary by Leonard Maltin, Documentary: Remarks on Marx, Groucho Marx on the The Hy Gardner Show (1961 broadcast), 3 Vintage Shorts, Trailer
