A must -see!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Theodora: Glyndebourne Festival Opera (Christie) [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This really is a superb example of Glyndbourne innovation at its highest. Fantastic singing (the highlight for me being Lorraine Hunt's "As with Rosy Steps"...magical!!!) from a cast who can (shock!horror!) act as well. Superb direction too - for me, the "risky" treatment really works. I recommend it to blow away those "Handel cobwebs", along with the equally fantastic ENO production of Xerxes.
