Rimsky Korsakov: Le Coq d'Or
Bel Air Classiques, La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, Alain Altinoglu, BLUERAY, Rimsky-Korsakov
This new production from the Theatre de la Monnaie, recorded in December 2016, was imagined by Laurent Pelly. Drawing from the modernity of Rimsky-Korsakov's musical and dramatic imagination, the ambiguities of its specular structure, and its underlying reflection on language, manipulation and absurdity, the French stage director underlies the heavily symbolical aspects of this fierce and pitiless tale, all the while remembering both its historical context and its universal philosophical depth.
