I can never hear that title without thinking of the lines from 'Pretty Woman'

Old Lady at Opera: Did you like the opera, dear?
Vivian: It was so good, I almost peed my pants!
Old Lady: Look of shock & horror on her face
Edward: She said she liked it better than Pirates of Penzance.

Wish this was the Kevin Kline/Linda Ronstadt version, but I'll probably pick this one up anyway.

Yeah I was hoping this was the version everyone always references and uses music from. I have never actually seen it, but I think I should probably see the Kevin Kline one first, even if it is on standard def.

Unfortunately, the Kevin Kline version that is found on DVD is the stage version. The Disney film version is 10x better than the stage film, but I have searched for this phenomenal film for years to own, and haven't been able to find it. I had a tape of it as a kid but it's long gone now.

Anyone know where to get a copy?

I didn't know Disney ever did a version, and I can't find one on imdb. Do you have any more info about it?
