Product Description

Product Description

When The Flame Dies is an opera by Ed Hughes which draws upon the relationship between Jean Cocteau and poet Raymond Radiguet.

In addition the audio recording, this set features a live concert performance from the Canterbury Festival in 2012 complete with the visual projections and subtitled libretto. The DVD also includes the short film 'The Symptoms Of His Madness Were As Follows:', which uses the Ed Hughes track 'Chamber Concerto I' from the Metier CD Dark Formations MSV 28530. The film was created by the animator and filmmaker Sheryl Jenkins, whose work includes collaborative projects with artists, schools, community groups, and education and arts organisations, as well as independent film productions and residencies.

Review

This release one to get to grips with one of the more arresting and distinctive chamber operas to have emerged in the UK over the recent years. --IRR, Mar'14

This is a different kind of operatic proposition. Concise, it nevertheless manages to pack considerable punch. Hughes's music fizzes with invention ... there is a Stravinskian sparkle to the writing. The performance is very well realised, well cast, performed with commitment, and accurately recorded. --Tempo

A great new opera. Engaging and electrifying. Playing and singing is of high standard throughout. Highly recommended if you like new work!
