STRAVINSKY: OEDIPUS REX / NORMAN / LANGRIDGE / SAITO KINEN ORCH / OZAWA

Notes & Reviews:

"...The musical performance is a strong one, although occasionally softened by slow tempos. Langridge and Norman are old hands at these parts, and both sing very well. A young Bryn Terfel is most effective as Creon... Supporting roles are superbly sung, particularly the Shepherd of Robert Swensen and the Messenger of Michio Tatara... The main extra (59 minutes) is called 'Conversations with Julie Taymor'. She is interviewed, and she carries on separate conversations with set designer George Tsypin, Seiji Ozawa, and Jessye Norman.... I cannot recall a DVD in which the subsidiary material is so rewarding. There are also 187 still pictures of preparation, rehearsal, and performance..." -Fanfare
