Product Description

CD88738 SEMELE ENO 1999 Video

In preparation for next Friday; a cautionary tale about the dangers of hubris for a girl that fancies a fling with a god. Robert Carsen's production should be required watching. Source is a BBC2 broadcast (actually a simulcast but the sound is from the TV broadcast) in 1999. Transferred from VHS to DVD and thence converted to .avi. The quality has come out quite well. Chunks are on Youtube but this is the whole evening including Interval; about 3 hours.

Tech; 2.63GB; video, 480x360 ffdshow; audio, AC3Filter

Semele, Rosemary Joshua Jupiter/Apollo, John Mark Ainsley Juno, Susan Bickley Ino, Sarah Connolly Prince Athamas, Stephen Wallace Cadmus, Clive Bayley Iris, Janis Kelly Chorus and Orchestra of ENO Cond Harry Bicket

Interval; Charles Hazlewood on the subject of Semele, hubris and satire. Quite funny.

As a taster, and for those willing to forgo a nice 'Where're you walk..' and the many pleasures of a 'British' royal family at play, here is the highlight: Rosemary Joshua's 'Endless pleasure..' This is not an extract but is to a slightly higher resolution than the complete performance.

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
