Berlioz: Béatrice et Bénédict Blu-ray (Glyndebourne)

Berlioz: Béatrice et Bénédict Blu-ray, shows the classic opéra comique interpreted by French director Laurent Pelly. This adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing is a testament to Berlioz's unwavering admiration for the Bard, as seen through a unique and masterful lens.

 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).
