Director David McVicar

Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, June 2012

Les Troyens is a tour de force that ranges from fiery military marches to intense choruses, passionate soliloquies and the lyrical love duets of Dido and Aeneas. For Hector Berlioz, librettist and composer, the opera became the work of decades and the passion of a lifetime, the culmination of his literary love affair with Virgil's Aeneid and with two tragic heroines, Cassandra and Dido. David McVicar's staging is on an enormous scale, assembling one of the largest casts ever seen at Covent Garden. The sweeping theme of the rise and fall of empires runs throughout Les Troyens, along with moving meditations on love and honour.

- David McVicar’s acclaimed staging of Berlioz’s epic opera.
- Rarely staged due to its scale, this is the first Covent Garden production for 40 years.
- World-class cast including Eva-Maria Westbroek, Anna Caterina Antonacci and Bryan Hymel.
- Conducted by Antonio Pappano.
- Extra features: Designer Es Devlin explains the model box / Royal Opera House Insight Event and a Cast gallery.

‘‘David McVicar's stupendous production … would be worth seeing for Es Devlin's mighty sets and Constructivist Trojan horse alone.’’ The Wall Street Journal
‘‘Musically the show is top-notch … A fabulous evening.’’ The Independent
