News > Brian May Wraps Work On DVD Audio Version Of Queen's 'A Night At The Opera'

Added on 20-Jan-2002

Yahoo Music Launch reports that Brian has finished work on the DVD version of NATOSinger-guitarist Brian May wrapped up work on the DVD Audio version of Queen's 1975 album A Night At The Opera this week. May has overseen the project from its inception, and he finished supervising the six-channel surround sound mix on Wednesday (January 16) in Los Angeles.

Originally due last November 20, the release was pushed back to April to make sure everything is as good as can it be. The package is being released by DTS Entertainment/Valley Entertainment.

The DVD Audio version of A Night At The Opera features full 5.1 surround remixes of all the songs, as well as the original video for "Bohemian Rhapsody," which is also in 5.1 surround. It was also originally supposed to have included all the music in Advanced Resolution MLP stereo, 96/24 DTS 5.1, and PCM stereo, but it's unknown whether all those features will remain.

As its name suggests, the DVD Audio format requires a DVD player--the discs won't play on a CD player.
