Monteverdi: Il Ritorno d'Ulisse In Patria / Rolfe Johnson, Araya, Spence, Asawa [2 DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

In his penultimate opera, based on text adapted from Homer’s Odyssey, Monteverdi ventures further than ever before into the depths of human emotion. In this ‘dramma in musica’ human frailty falls victim to time, fortune and love. Gods and humans, comic and intensely serious characters and spectacular scenic effects are brought together in a wonderfully rich and effective texture. Pierre Audi’s highly stylised and timeless production is captured here in a live recording from Het Muziektheater Amsterdam in 1998.
