Product description

Product Description

A grand opera that dominated the stages of Europe for most of the 19th century, Robert le diable is a masterpiece. Director Laurent Pelly breathes new life into Giacomo Meyerbeer's great spectacle and audaciously entertaining moral fable, in this colourful new staging for The Royal Opera. The wonderful score includes brilliant arias, dramatic ensembles, rousing choruses and a ballet of ghostly nuns, and with the wavering hero of the title sung by Bryan Hymel, acclaimed for his role as Énée in Les Troyens for The Royal Opera and the Metropolitan Opera, this is an unmissable experience.

Press Reviews

"‘‘…some amazing singing. Bryan Hymel as Robert and Patrizia Ciofi as his beloved Isabelle tackle their immense roles with tremendous panache and stamina." (The Guardian)
" ... the production is worth seeing for anyone interested in the history of opera and it may well be another 120 years before Covent Garden stages it again." (The Washington Times)
"... the opportunity to see this particular Meyerbeer creation, last given at Covent Garden in 1890, should not be missed bv lovers of the composer's music." (International Record Review)

Review

Whatever the reasons, the opportunity to see this particular Meyerbeer creation, last given at Convent Garden in 1890, should not be missed by lovers of the composer's music. --IRR, Sept'13

The high standard of filming and sound is indeed everything one would expect from Opus Arte. --Gramophone awards issue,2013
