Notes & Reviews:

With evocative sets and splendid lighting, enjoy the world premiere of the full and original version of 'Merlin' by Isaac Albeniz, over a century after he completed the work.

2009 two DVD set. Enjoy the world premiere of the full and original version of Merlin by Isaac Albéniz, over a century after he completed the work. Albéniz composed this `Wagnerian' opera to an English libretto by his patron Francis Burdett Money-Coutts between 1898 and 1902. Many believed the score was lost, until the conductor José de Eusebio reconstructed it from various manuscript sources and publishers' proofs. For this stunning production, director John Dew created a world of magic and fantasy, using evocative sets and splendid lighting.
