"I bought this after seeing the video clip on the Opus Arte website. Beautifully performed opera with original instruments, excellent singers and great sound quality. Especially notable are the counter tenor Brian Asawa and the passionate portrayal of Penelope by Graciela Araya. The minimalist set matches the action well.
2 discs, subtitles in German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Dutch. 176 minutes running time. Extras include a synopsis read in English, about 17 minutes of rehearsal and interviews (all with subtitles) and a cast gallery."
