Director Laurent Pelly


Through the eye of French director Laurent Pelly this expression of Berlioz’s undying admiration for the Bard — his adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing as an opéra comique — becomes ‘an elegant treatise on love and music designed in shades of grey with 50s-era costumes’ (Sunday Express).

Housed by designer Barbara de Limburg in a series of oversized boxes, it’s ‘terribly chic, terribly pretty’ (The Spectator).

Soaring over the ‘warmly graceful playing of the London Philharmonic’, Paul Appleby sings ‘attractively’ as Bénédict and Stéphanie d’Oustrac ‘makes a marvellously wiry and fiery Béatrice, singing with charm and acting with gusto’ (The Telegraph).

- Béatrice et Bénédict is based on Much Ado About Nothing.
- Berlioz’ final opera & expression of his life-long passion for the Shakespeare
- Extra Features: Rediscovering a Masterwork and a cast gallery.

What the press said
‘‘…delivered with sumptuous assurance...’’ (The Times)
‘‘Paul Appleby and Stéphanie d’Oustrac excel in the title roles’’ (Music OMH)
