Handel: Saul DVD (Glyndebourne)

Director Barrie Kosky's debut production is a musical feast of energetic choruses, surreal choreography and gorgeous singing.  The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under Ivor Bolton sparkles from the pit with period panache, and designer Katrin Lea Tag’s ‘exuberant costumes’ (The Times ★★★★) set the Old Testament story in Handel’s time, with a witty twinge of the contemporary.
