Glyndebourne Festival Opera
London Philharmonic Orchestra
The Makropulos Case focuses on the issue of longevity – the pros and cons of living for 337 years, as happens to the mysterious Emilia Marty, the sexually irresistible prima donna who has seen it all and done it all. Part grotesque human comedy, part profound personal tragedy, this opera examines the eternal mystery of human existence with uniquely life-enhancing vision.
Recorded live at Glyndebourne Festival Opera in August 1995 and re-mastered in high-definition from the original master tape.
“Anja Silja's Emilia Marty in Makropulos at Glyndebourne is a nonpareil triumph… This is a near-perfect production by Nikolaus Lehnhoff” - Wall Street Journal
“I am lost for superlatives… perhaps heart-stopping, soul shattering, out-of-body experience will have to do, to describe this brilliant new production” - The Spectator
“Anja Silja…….an electrifying performance….a perfect example of just what video opera can and ought to be” - Opera Now
