First ever recording of Pascal Dusapin’s 'Penthesilea' released
With Penthesilea, Pascal Dusapin delivered a wild, powerful music drama on the tragic love between Penthesilea, queen of the Amazons, and the Greek hero Achilles. The opera, recorded in full during the world creation at La Monnaie in 2015, will now be available on a double cd.
Two months after its release, the dvd of La Monnaie’s Jakob Lenz has received huge critical acclaim, resulting in awards including Télérama’s ffff, The Diapason d'Or as well as the Diamant d’Opéra in this September’s edition of Opéra Magazine.
