Death In Venice (Glyndebourne Festival Opera) / Robert Tear, Alan Opie [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

"The whole production is a triumph and a pertinent reminder that the Glyndebourne Touring Opera is no second division company sent to the provinces, but one worthy of comparison with any small opera company world-wide. A case of limitations fostering imagination...Balance between singers and the London Sinfonietta is first class and Graeme Jenkins is right inside the score. The text (Myfanwy Piper) is subtle and diction, especially Robert Tear's, good enough to make it reasonable that there are no English subtitles (which I find useful in the theatre even for opera in English)...If you are a Britten enthusiast but not yet a DVD devotee, this is one to go for - its important balletic component demands to be Seen as well as Heard." - Peter Grahame Woolf, Music Web international
