Spare, Chilling Britten
Randy Buck | Brooklyn, NY USA | 05/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD of the Aix-en-Provence production is very satisfactory, both musically and dramatically. The direction is intelligent, the design elegant and simple; the small stage and spare visual effects manage to create some really hair-raising images. Any version of this opera rests primarily on its female lead, and Mireille Delunsch doesn't disappoint. Her musicianship and acting are exemplary; perhaps her slight French accent could be faulted in this most Anglo piece, but that's my only quibble. The children are fine, although Flora's a bit on the phlegmatic side. The prologue here is sung by the children's uncle, an interesting idea. Quint and Jessel are excellent, appropriately florid and spooky (although Jessel's gift of a modern lipstick to Flora is a howler). I haven't seen the other available DVDs of this piece, but hard to see how they could top this one. Recommended."
