Staging Louise Moaty
After the successes of Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme and Cadmus & Hermione, Alpha is continuing its audiovisual exploration of lyric repertoires offering, for the first time on DVD, John Blow’s Venus and Adonis, accompanied by his Ode to Saint Cecilia.
All the components that contributed to the success of the first two DVDs are again present here: body movements, ballets, candle lighting, ‘restored’ English…
This is also the occasion to discover the conducting talent of Bertrand Cuiller, whose approach to these works features relief, virtuosity and sensitivity.
Subtitles: French, English, German, Spanish, Japanese
Total time: Venus & Adonis: 60’, Bonus: Ode to Saint Cecilia: 25’, Making-Of: 18’
