Label: Opus Arte

Reference: OA 1054D

Format: DVD

Price: $29.98

Description: "Limited Edition" "Contains 6 exclusive postcards" says the magenta print on the black cover with the sparkly diamonds title and the Dutch soprano in classic Anna Nicole pose (the special effects include monstrous fake breasts to get her up to size...). This wild collection of jazz, blues, musical comedy and lounge music floored critics on both sides of the Atlantic at its February 2011 premiere. I particularly like the Daily Mail guy who compared the libretto to "Sondheim with the off-the-wall zaniness of Monty Python", and the Sunday Times reviewer who said that the work "hits all the G-spots". But yes, it's still opera; after all this is Convent Garden, remember (there's also an "explicit language and sexual scenes" warning!). Eva-Maria Westbroek (soprano), Susan Bickley (mezzo), Alan Oke (tenot), Gerald Finley (baritone), Royal Opera Chorus, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House; Antonio Pappano. 16:9 widescreen, 5.1 DTS or LPCM stereo 2.0. NTSC all regions. 120 min.
