Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is a BLU-RAY disc and will not play on a standard DVD player. A standard DVD is available as DEC B001286809. Opera superstar Cecilia Bartoli offers her first operatic release on DVD in 12 years, and also her first opera in English. Bartoli stars as Semele (a role usually taken by a soprano) in Handel's late opera, which features such well-known arias as "Endless pleasure, endless love," "Myself I shall adore," and "Oh sleep, why dost though leave me?" Robert Carsen's stylish modern dress production hints at parallels with the problematic relationship between the late Princess Diana and the British Royal Family in this live recording from the Zurich Opera House in January, 2007.
