The 2003 production of the opera, Merlin, from Madrid`s Teatro Real
Certificate: none
Running Time: 184 mins
Retail Price: £24.99
Release Date:

This double DVD release features the world premiere recording of the full and original version of the three act opera Merlin by Isaac Albeniz, produced over a hundred years after he completed the work. The score of this `Wagnerian` opera, with a libretto by the composer`s English-born patron Francis Burdett Money-Coutts, was thought to be lost until conductor Jose de Eusebio reconstructed it from various manuscript sources and publishers` proofs. Jose de Eusebio fittingly conducts the Madrid Symphony Orchestra and Choir here in this lavish and colourful production, staged at the Teatro Real in Madrid and directed by John Drew.
