I've both the DVD and Blu Ray versions of this program. The DVD works great, however the Blu Ray wouldn't play in surround 5.1. I've already changed the disc and the issue remains. I've also tested both discs in several systems, including a professional one at a local store. Is anyone experiencing the same problem?

I am a professional singer and a veteran of many productions of The Magic Flute. This is superb!
