Notes & Reviews:

"This stunningly conceived, musically vibrant Orfeo was taped at Brussels' La Monnaie in 1998. The much-lauded production later traveled to the Brooklyn Academy of Music where it was as great a success as it had been in Belgium. And indeed, anyone coming to this DVD is in for a treat, a veritable feast for both eye and ear. Choreographer/director Trisha Brown, conductor Rene Jacobs, and designer Roland Aeschlimann have created an ideal fusion of words, action, sight, and sound, one that never lets the viewer down and manages to tell the story in an elegant, unusual, and ultimately intensely moving manner... The CDs include a "Making of..." documentary that is fascinating and allows us to watch all of the creators creating. This is sui generis--and a fabulous entertainment... the best video version available." -Classics Today (10/10)
