Product Description
Last in a line of proud queens elected to rule the fertile lands of the West, true owner of the legendary Round Table, guardian of the Great Goddess herself . . . a woman whose story has never been told--until now.

As High King and Queen, Arthur and Guenevere reign supreme across the many kingdoms of Great Britain. Still, Guenevere secretly mourns the loss of her beloved Lancelot, who has returned to the Sacred Lake of his boyhood, hoping to restore his faith in chivalry in the place where he learned to be a knight. In a glittering Pentecost ceremony, new knights are sworn to the Round Table, including Arthur's nephews, Agravain and Gawain. After many years of strife, peace is restored to Guenevere's realm.

But betrayal, jealousy, and ancient blood feuds fester unseen. Morgan Le Fay, now the mother of Arthur's only son, Mordred, has become the focus of Merlin's age-old quest to ensure the survival of the house of Pendragon. From the east comes the shattering news that Guenevere may have a rival for Lancelot's love. A bleak shadow falls again across Camelot--and across the sacred isle of Avalon, where Roman priests threaten the life of the Lady herself. At the center of the storm is Guenevere, torn between her love for her husband, her people, and Sir Lancelot of the Lake.

With rare and intuitive magic, Rosalind Miles brings to life a legendary woman's bravery and passion, and all the pageantry, heartbreak, violence, and beauty of an age gone by.

Benjamin Britten's Death in Venice at Garsington - stunning personal vision

Kevin Knight's set was simplicity itself, just a wide open expanse of blue on the backdrop with four long billowing translucent curtains which were deployed in various ways across the stage. We rarely saw the whole stage, and the backdrop was only completely revealed in the moments when Aschenbach is contemplating the view from the Lido and Britten's sinuous Venice theme ripples through the orchestra. During the monologues, we would be aware of people passing, dimly seen through the curtains, so that emphasis was on Aschenbach himself and the way he saw the city and its people. This stylish economy gave the result a highly poetic feel, which contrasted with the stocky, very corporeal figure of Paul Nilon's Aschenbach. I am old enough to remember seen Peter Pears in his final performances as Aschenbach at Covent Garden in the 1980's and one of my abiding memories is of the tall elegance of Aschenbach in his interpretation. But Paul Nilon's Aschenbach was different, he was rumpled and careworn thus contrasting with the bare elegance of the surroundings and the lithe beauty of the young male dancers. Aschenbach himself, played by Paul Nilon, the sinister baritone figures played by William Dazely and the young Tadzio, played by Celestin Boutin. Where Paul Curran's production differed from some other more recent ones was in the amount of dance used. Paul Curran and choreographer (and assistant director) Andreas Heise really used dance to create an expressive language for Tadzio, his family and the young men on the beach. But this was visual beauty, and Celesin Boutin's dancing ensured that Tadzio was highly expressive but completely separate from Paul Nilon's Aschenbach. In his interview with me, Paul Curran talked about his desire to make the opera more about obsession than simply and old queen chasing after young men. ) provided a keen contrast to the way Paul Nilon's Aschenbach simply looked at the young men on the beach, obsessing over their extreme physical beauty. The role of Aschenbach is very much a portrait of Peter Pears' voice, and any singer taking on the role has to negotiate with this. Like many of the most successful post-Pears Aschenbach's Paul Nilon has a very different kind of voice. Source: Planet Hugill - A world of classical music
