Overview

The Brussels based La Monnaie - De Munt mounted and launched this production of Stravinsky's opera The Rake's Progress, directed by Robert LePage. This particular version updates the familiar setting of vice-ridden London to 1950s Las Vegas, with set designs heavily influenced by postwar American television. Laura Claycomb, Andrew Kennedy and William Shimell co-star; The Symphony Orchestra and Chorus of La Monnaie - De Munt provide musical accompaniment.

Editorial Reviews

Dallas Morning News - Scott Cantrell
[Grade: A] The cast would be hard to beat anywhere. Laura Claycomb, a Southern Methodist University alum, is an irresistible, radiant-voiced Anne, and Andrew Kennedy, with an easy lyric tenor, perfectly portrays Tom's disintegration.
