    This is a live recording from the premiere in Cagliari/Italy. The orchestra under Gerard Korsten plays a fine Strauss-Style. But since I am a voice fan I'd write mainly about the singers. The title role is sung by the young Vitalija Blinstrubyte, who is a lyric "Helena" (which I prefer to a too dramatic one) and manages the enormous difficulties in this part very well. Her counterpart is Stephen O'Mara as Menelaos. He is a true heroic tenor with a masculine baritone-colored voice. He is the absolute highlight of this recording. There's often said that real heroic tenors are hard to find. Well, here we have one. Yelda Kodalli ist a fine Aithra and Johannes von Duisburg is a very dark and mysterious Altair. Ulfried Haselsteiner as "Daud" sings his melodic aria with a beautiful lyric legato. Regina Mauel is a very dark-sounding Muschel and also the rest of the cast young and good singers. I prefer this recordings to other ones because of its juvenile freshness. Young singers bring this seldom-heard masterpiece to new bloom. If you like Strauss-Operas, this is a recording you should't miss. (Forgive my english, I'm french)
