Notes & Reviews:

Philip Glass's opera Spuren der Verirrten (The Lost) was first performed in April 2013 at the opening of the new Musiktheater am Volksgarten Linz. The opera is based on a play by the same title by Peter Handke. The production team included Artistic Director Rainer Mennicken, Maestro Dennis Russell Davies and the renowned Bruckner Orchester Linz. The New York Times described Glass' score as, "a richly colorful, flowing tapestry of sound."

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The latest of Glass's 26 operas - this one was first performed in April 2013 - The Lost (Spuren der Verirrten) returns to more experimental theatrical territory. The DVD is superbly suited for the medium. All in all, this new opera strikes me as an important work and one that I'll enjoy studying further.
