Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Bartok's only opera, Bluebeard's Castle, is bitingly dramatic and keeps audiences enthralled from beginning to end. It is performed here with absolute authority by Opera North. Farnes and his cast deliver an impassioned, deeply resonant reading of Bartok's masterpiece, revealing the protagonists' inner states in the brilliance of Bartok's orchestration which is full of both subtlety and power. "It's powerful stuff and you need to hear it." -The Guardian
