Notes & Reviews:
The grand opera Les Huguenots was one of the greatest operatic successes of the 19th century, and its creator was the foremost composer of his time. Today the work is underperformed and Meyerbeer is overlooked. In this remarkable 1991 production by John Dew, divided Berlin substitutes for the opera's Catholic/Protestant conflict to astonishing effect.Notes & Reviews:
