Glyndebourne: Ravel Double Bill

[no certificate]

2012, 125 mins

This production of Ravel's only two one-act operas will reunite director Laurent Pelly and conductor Kazushi Ono, who made their Glyndebourne debuts in 2008 with Humperdinck's Hänsel und Gretel.

While L'enfant et les Sortilèges shares with that opera a child's-eye view of a sometimes threatening world, L'heure Espagnole is a thoroughly adult confection.

Stéphanie d'Oustrac, who last sang at Glyndebourne as Sesto in Giulio Cesare, will sing Concepción, while Canadian baritone Elliot Madore will make his UK and Glyndebourne debut as Ramiro.

Live: Since 1934 an interval of 90 minutes has been part of the Glyndebourne experience. Time enough for a three-course meal and a walk through the grounds, it became a tradition long before broadcasting opera to cinema audiences was ever conceived.

For the many people now enjoying opera at the cinema, 30 minutes is a more realistic length of time to take a break. 'Live from Glyndebourne' means that we start our cinema transmissions a little after curtain-up at Glyndebourne and, by the end of the interval, we have caught up, joining Glyndebourne live for the remaining acts and curtain-down.
