Description

Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria (CD)

Seventy years after its Glyndebourne world premiere, Benjamin Britten’s first chamber opera is welcomed home with ‘a performance of enthralling emotional power and physical beauty’ gifted with ‘piercingly intelligent, immaculately realised staging and superb singing, acting and playing’ led by ‘Fiona Shaw’s supremely nuanced direction’ and underpinned by ‘febrile playing’ from members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra (The Telegraph). The production eloquently and tastefully tackles the difficult subject, which is lent emotional weight by ‘Christine Rice’s grandly sung Lucretia, noble in tone yet tragically vulnerable’, along with baritone Duncan Rock’s ‘forthright’ Tarquinius and the‘smooth bass’ of Matthew Rose as the caring Collatinus (The Guardian).

Reviews
"The Times" (This new production…possibly the most truthful --- you’re likely to see in some time.)
"The Daily Telegraph Related" (Piercingly intelligent, immaculately realised ... Here is music drama of the very highest power and quality.)
