I agree with everything I Giles has written, except that I wish I had his strength of constitution....I broke down in tears twice whilst watching this extraordinary performance!!!! It would indeed be invidious to pick out individual performers for special praise....they are all excellent....superb sets, lighting and otchestral playing under Hrusa, clearly an emerging talent....but there are some moments which stop the breath and even the heart - Quint's seduction of Miles at bath-time - Flora by the lake - and, my word, anyone who can listen in this amazing performance to Miles's "Malo" song, or its reprise by the Governess at the end, without their heart breaking at least a little probably doesn't have one!!!
As Fischer-Dieskau said at the end of the premiere of the War Requiem, "I was completely undone; I did not know where to hide my face". I felt the same after watching this. Try it and see.
