Overview

Recorded live in Glyndebourne, East Sussex, England, at the famed Glyndebourne Festival Opera during its 1975 season, Stravinsky: The Rake's Progress - in this home video release from ArtHaus Musik and EuroArts - features what is widely-regarded as one of the finest operatic productions from the second half of the Twentieth century. Leo Goeke (as Tom Rakewell) and Felicity Lott (as Anne Trulove) bring to life the two leads in Igor Stravinsky's tale of an initially well-meaning young man who soon finds himself falling headfirst into illicit and lascivious, rakish behavior, before he is saved from eternal damnation by Trulove yet goes insane from his association with the powers of darkness and is sentenced to an asylum. Supporting the production are legendary production design by David Hockney, acclaimed performances by the London Philharmonic and the Glyndebourne Chorus, and the stage direction of John Cox.
