Description
Based on the Greek legend of Ulysses and his belated return to Ithaca after the Trojan War, Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria is a seminal opera, and Monteverdi's music for it is of transcendent beauty. He took what had been a form of one-dimensional musical drama and enriched it with all of the emotion, excitement, and expression that is captured in this video. This 1973 production was directed by Peter Hall and conducted by Raymond Leppard at Britain's National Theatre. The terrific crew and cast—particularly the outstanding leads Benjamin Luxon as Ulysses and Dame Janet Baker as Penelope—stage an impassioned production that is accentuated by the gorgeous visual design.

"When you watch this performance … there is no escaping the feeling that these singers (Baker, Luxon, Howells, and Lloyd in particular) practically embody the emotional power of Greek drama…. Every time Ulysses or Penelope are onscreen, they absolutely rivet your attention, they embody their characters, they make the opera live and breathe."—Fanfare
