Album Summary

>Bennett, Richard R. : The Mines of Sulphur, opera
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Sir Richard Rodney Bennett's Gothic opera, 'The Mines of Sulphur', is reminiscent of suspense thrillers from Poe to Hitchcock. The opera's gritty but eminently accessible score is full of brilliant instrumental detail and canny theatrical underlining of Beverley Cross's eerie and original libretto. "A diamentine, dramatically charged score full of brillant instrumental detail and canny theatrical underlining." - New York Magazine
