MP493337 1979 Lulu in alternate version

After posting a new link for oktavian92's version of the live telecast of the complete 'Lulu' in its world premiere production at the Paris Opera in 1979, I decided to have a try at re-uploading the larger-format alternative offered by erichkornau in message #57121 (August 23, 2008.)

Needless to say, it was a much more ambitious undertaking.

Erichkornau's 2.4 GB version had originally been split in 26 parts; and, while I had eventually stored it as single file, I was frankly dubious that RapidShare 'unlimited' upload--even if it worked in this instance--would be a truly practical approach, either for me or any potential downloader. So, after a couple of false starts, I finally split the upload into two (somewhat unequal) segments which must be rejoined by HJSplit after they have been downloaded :

According to erichkornau's own specs, the image is 640 x 480 and the sound was recorded at 256 kbits. As is the case in oktavian's version, the picture is quite dark and may take some getting used to. Instead of French subtitles, there are Japanese subtitles here.


Since the cast and production credits (as given by oktavian and copied in every subsequent posting) are rife with misspelled names, I'll offer a corrected listing of my own.
