Handel: Hercules

Handel: Hercules


Joyce DiDonato (Dejanira), William Shimell (Hercules), Ingela Bohlin (Iole), Toby Spence (Hyllus), Malena Ernman (Lichas) & Simon Kirkbride (Priest of Jupiter)

Les Arts Florissants Chorus & Orchestra, William Christie (conductor) & Luc Bondy (stage director)

Sets: Richard Peduzzi

Costumes: Rudy Sabounghi

Lighting: Dominique Bruguière

Video director: Vincent Bataillon

Production: François Duplat - Bel Air Media

The first collaboration ever between conductor William Christie and director Luc Bondy with mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, this production of Hercules has been a major event. First release in High-Definition.

Hercules returns from the war with Iole, a princess he fell in love with. Mad with jealousy, Déjanire, his wife, ends up totally insane after poisoning her husband.

Half theatrical performance, half secular oratorio, Hercules wasn’t originally meant to be performed in front of an audience. Luc Bondy chose to show the dramatis personae as ordinary people, victims of their passions. The superb Chorus of the Arts Florissants, both mediator and prosecutor, is the main witness of this tragedy of women’s jealousy.

The Orchestre des Arts Florissants, conducted by William Christie, is at its best with Handel, allowing Christie to support and accompany a stellar vocal cast.

With his great presence, British baritone William Shimel gives a spectacular death to his hero while American mezzo Joyce DiDonato excels as Déjanire. Gifted with a particularly rich timbre, she displays an admirable singing technique and superlative dramatic abilities. Soprano Ingela Bohlia and mezzo Malena Ernmann, both from Sweden, make marvels in the supporting roles. Last but not least, British tenor Toby Spence serves the beautiful role of Hyllus with his elegant singing.

The movie Hercules received the student prize at the Golden Prague 2005.

Rahsaan Roland Kirk: The Case of the Three Sided Dream

Rahsaan Roland Kirk: The Case of the Three Sided Dream


Rahsaan Roland Kirk

The Case of the Three Sided Dream is a film by Adam Kahan, the documentary on the life, music and legacy of multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk.

Kirk was a one of a kind musician, personality, satirist and windmill-slayer who despite being blind, becoming paralyzed, and facing America’s racial injustices – did not relent. His life’s work was exploring sound and making music. Beyond that, he was an outspoken activist who started a political movement to get more exposure for jazz in America – particularly on TV. Dreams were important to Rahsaan. They planted the seed in his mind to play three horns simultaneously. His name came from dreams. When asked about his religious beliefs, he would say, “I’m from the Religion of Dreams”.

At the age of 40, at the apex of his career, Rahsaan suffered a stroke, which left him half paralyzed. Despite this, he continued to tour and play music, with the use of only one hand, literally until the day he died.

Special features (20 mins):

- Joel Dorn talks about Rahsaan

- Bright Moments, performed live in 1977
