A gigantic blood-red monster, made of steel and flames, floating on the still waters of Lake Constance - this is Robert Carsen`s unconventional vision of the setting of Verdi`s masterpiece Il Trovatore for the 60th anniversary of the Bregenz Festival. In this threatening set of fire and metal, designed by Paul Steinberg, the characters burn with the passions they experience - love, hatred, sexual desire and revenge - and which eventually destroy them. The High Definition live recording of this most spectacular outdoor production combines astonishing images, relevant reflections on today`s world and superb musical expression from the soloists and the world-renowned Wiener Symphoniker Orchestra, inspired by musical director Thomas Rösner.

Documentary `Stage on a Lake` including interviews with the stage director & set designer
