Near Perfection

A small provincial Opera House asks a great conductor to put on his ideal production of the work which meant most to him. The result was a landmark in performance of this Opera that few were able to attend, but those that did were very privileged. The staging under Peter Stein is subtle and clever; It's realistic in the detail, acknowledging its 19th century foundations, yet set in a beautifully realised symbolic decor. The cast looks good and sounds good. Samuel Barkey as Yniold brings of the most challenging role for a child soprano in all of Opera. The only let down is that this is a transfer of a TV recording and the video quality is not of the best. The sound quality however is fine.
