Beauty in expression.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Theodora [Blu-ray]  [Region A & B & C] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, Dawn Upshaw and David Daniels play out this heady intense drama with such ravishing singing that beauty is the only word I can use to express my delight at discovering this masterpiece. Peter Sellars, the director, uses his gift for visual and directorial art to produce Handel's timeless evocation of moral and spiritual courage in the face of tyranny and deceit, placing the drama with contemporary iconographic representations of oppression and tyranny which give the production an edge that takes it further than perhaps comfortable evocations could. A stunning and rich experience for anyone wanting to learn more about Handel, Sellars, Lorraine Hunt et al, Glyndebourne and William Christie. I am so pleased this Blu ray has been released. It is a worthy document.
