Product details


Product Description

Nicholas Hytners highly innovative production of Handels comic opera won the coveted Laurence Olivier Opera Award. This live recording from the English National Opera stars Lesley Garrett and Ann Murray as Xerxes, whose love for Romilda, sung by Valerie Masterson, sets off a series of love intrigues. The designer, David Fielding, has produced a stunning and elegant series of curious and absorbing images, creating a world of its own and recreating the culture of Vauxhall Gardens in Handels own time. Sir Charles Mackerras conducts the English National Opera orchestra in an edition prepared by himself.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is not perfect, but it is good. 7 Jun 2012
By Imad Moustapha - Published on
The singing of Murray, Masterson and Garrett leaves very little to desire. However, the mannerism and voice quality of Christofer Robson is too much for my taste. The production is not exceptional and the customes are silly. Nevertheless, this is an enjoyable work that really deserves to be obtained and watched more than once. The music is superb, and Mackerras handles it smoothly and elegantly. Despite all my misgivings, it gave me lots of pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the old is new again. 7 Jun 2014

Everyone knows the melody of the "Largo" from Xerxes, but how many know it is an ode to a tree? This production by the English National Opera is artfully staged, beautifully sung in easily understood English, and will delight Handel lovers who wish to go beyond "The Messiah".
