Gluck: Alceste / Angela Denoke, Isaac Galàn et al.; Teatro Real Chorus & Orchestra; Ivor Bolton [Blu-Ray]

Notes & Reviews:

The 300th anniversary of Christoph Willibald Gluck's birth in 2014 was celebrated at the Teatro Real in Madrid with a new production of Alceste (French version), staged by Krysztof Warlikowski and starring Angela Denoke as Alceste. Alceste is Gluck's most programmatic example of his quest for purer expression and deeper meaning. All its elements show a conscious effort to recreate the tragic origins of opera: its staunch dramatic unity, austere musical form, use of the chorus as a fundamental part of the story and, above all, its anachronistic but devoted adaptation of Euripides' tragedy.
