Albeniz: Merlin

David Wilson Johnson (Merlin); Stuart Skelton (Arthur); Eva Marton (Morgan Le Fay); Carol Vaness (Nivian);

"The lost opera of Camelot takes centre stage...Camelot, the court of King Arthur, has been rediscovered in Madrid...an expectant house has been thrilled by the world premiere of Merlin, the 'lost' opera of Isaac Albéniz....the conductor José De Eusebio painstakingly reconstructed it from various manuscript sources and publishers’ proofs...colour drenched sets, with giant, glowing Harry Potter style wands and the suggestive couplings of damsels and gnomes. From its opening stage scene, as dawn breaks outside St Paul’s Cathedral in London on a Christmas Morning to the final curtain, with the sun setting behind Madrid’s encircling mountains, turning the Plaza de Oriente and the Teatro Real pink, it is easy to imagine that Camelot is here after all." (The Times)
