    Hi Doug,

    Warner Vision is releasing in Europe several DVDs, and a couple of on-line retailers (MDT,
    Crotchet) indicate that these are to be NTSC. Would you have any way of finding out
    whether Warner intends to issue these DVDs in the U.S. and if so, when? The DVDs are:

    Andrea Chenier (1985)
    Arabella (1984)
    Les Contes d'Hoffmann (1981)
    La Fanciulla del West (1983)
    Die Fledermaus (1984)
    The Makropulos Case (1985)
    Manon Lescaut (1983)
    Peter Grimes (1981)

    I've checked their website and there isn't any information -- it states the website is
    still under construction.
