Notes & Reviews:

Cult director Robert Wilson's highly stylized and intensely dramatic staging brings a Zen-like tranquility to Verdi's great opera concerning the conflict between individual aspiration, tradition and duty. His visually calm, yet emotionally taut direction is emphasized by outstanding performances from the cast and the Symphonic Orchestra and Choirs of la Monnaie - De Munt under the commanding and inspired musical direction of Kazushi Ono. Recorded live at the Royal Opera House in Brussels, this riveting and painstakingly beautiful production, reminiscent at times of Japanese Noh theatre, offers a new and thought-provoking experience of a masterpiece.
