Opera House"Opera treats aspects of experience no other art has the boldness to address. It is the song of our irrationality, of the instinctual savagery which our jobs and routines and our nonsinging voices belie, of the music our bodies make. It is an art devoted to love and death; to the definition and the interchangeability of the sexes; to madness and devilment..."
Peter Conrad, A Song of Love and Death
… Cue OPERA HOUSE, the exciting series from Deutsche Grammophon, offering vintage and more recent recordings of both favourite and rare works from an extensive back catalogue - some no longer available, some offered at a special price for the first time. This is a series for first time opera collectors, opera freaks filling in the gaps in their collections, and price conscious customers. Fresh, eye-catching covers, modern design and a very modest outlay make the series an extremely attractive prospect. Each CD booklet includes a full track by track synopsis in English, German and French.
