June Anderson (Elena), Martine Dupuy (Malcolm), Rockwell Blake (Giacomo/'Uberto'), Giorgio Surjan (Douglas d'Angus), Chris Merritt (Rodrigo di Dhu)

Orchestra & Chorus of Teatro alla Scala, Riccardo Muti

Director Werner Herzog and conductor Riccardo Muti combine with the finest of casts to lavish Rossini’s rarely-performed Neapolitan masterpiece, set in feudal sixteenth century Scotland, with the genius it deserves. June Anderson is an outstanding Elena (the Lady of the Lake) in the 1992 production of the melodrama based on Sir Walter Scott’s poem.

PICTURE FORMAT: 4:3

SUBTITLES: EN

“The slickness of the scene changes, the direction of Werner Herzog, together with Rossini’s music, the solo and choral singing and Muti’s vibrant conducting keep the watcher and listener interested. As Elena, June Anderson keeps a pure vocal line with secure legato, plenty of tonal colour and secure coloratura.” MusicWeb International

“A fine tribute to the man who led us so rewardingly along opera's byways. …the late and lamented Patric Schmid. It is largely thanks to him and his colleagues at Opera Rara that we now have a fairly comprehensive familiarity and a greatly enhanced appreciation of early 19th-century Italian opera, a period which until recently was not only neglected but pretty widely despised.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2006

Yvonne Kenny, Rockwell Blake, Ashley Putnam, Brenda Boozer, Patricia Rosario

Orchestre de l’Opéra de Lyon, Theodor Guschlbauer

Subtitles: English, German, French, Italian

“Yvonne Kenny was already experienced in the role of Aspasia when this production was filmed in 1986, and here she is musically agile and dramatically compelling. Rockwell Blake is vocally muscular as Mitridate… The American soprano Ashley Putnam was simply an inspired choice for the... trouser-role of Sifare, and the rest of the cast is good. The direction is fluid...” BBC Music Magazine, May 2005 ****
