Notes & Reviews:

This is a BLU-RAY disc and it will not play on a standard DVD player. A magnificent doomsday vision. A full-length nightmare. This production of Rued Langgaard's allegorical opera 'Antikrist' witnesses the spectacular Danish co-production by the Royal Danish Opera and the Danish Broadcasting Corporation from 2002. No pains are spared as the composer's revelation unfolds with its intriguing allegorical characters and its powerful statement about the moral decay of modernity.

"Rued Langgaard's Antikrist is fabulous--a genuine, undiscovered, eccentric masterpiece... If you keep an open mind and just wallow in the glorious music, you're going to love this piece, and I can't imagine a better case being made for it than what you see and hear on this excellent DVD. It's a knockout!" -Classics Today (10/10)
