A delightfully staged performance of Janacek’s fairy tale opera has the ageless Seiji Ozawa leading a strong cast, supported by high production values.
Janáček’s fairy tale opera, The Cunning Little Vixen, gets the Glyndebourne Festival treatment much to its advantage and our delight.
Věc Makropulos, a rarely performed late Janáček opera, is given superb musical treatment in this sparsely staged Salzburg Festival performance.
A musically satisfying performance of Janacek’s masterpiece, Jenufa, is rendered by the Teatro Real forces led by Ivor Bolton. Excellent vocal performances are led by Amanda Roocroft, Debra Polaski and Miroslav Dvorsky. The video quality is not quite up to the best current standards but the voices are well captured by the audio engineers.
