Staged by La Fura dels Baus

Another fantastic staging by La Fura dels Baus. Recorded at the 25th Peralada Festival, Spain, 2011.

A splendid cast as well as an avant-garde production that makes extensive use of large projection screens and includes members of the orchestra as actors onstage result in one of the most exciting opera performances in recent years.

BBC Music Magazine

November 2012

**

“Rachvelishvili is a natural performer with a beautifully full mezzo-soprano, but as yet a lightweight Gluckian.”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2012

“Padrissa keeps the stage in a constant state of motion, often in ways that are conceptually rooted in historic authenticity...The big surprise is that, no matter how busy the screen becomes, it rarely distracts from the music...Rachvelishvili is a vocally robust, poetically alert Orpheus, though Auxiliadora Toledano steals the vocal honours in her wonderful portrayal of Amore”
