The Royal Opera House
This grand, epic opera runs 5 hours and 30 minutes with two intermissions
Les Troyens is opera at its most epic. The sheer scale of
its story, music, passion, staging and performers make this one of the
great Royal Opera House events of the decade. Berlioz’s great work is
one of the most fabulously rich of all operas, a tour de force of
passion in music, with extraordinarily demanding roles for the principal
cast. Eva-Maria Westbroek’s “big, shimmering, dark-hued voice [is]
ideal” as the heroine Didon, and Anna Caterina Antonacci “triumphed…her
singing was lush, fervent, finely spun and noble. A lovely woman, she
is a riveting actress” raves Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times.
This recording of a live performance will be presented on the all-new
big screen in the Concert Hall with crystal-clear HD projection and
beautiful surround sound.
