Together with Lucrezia Borgia (available on Blu-ray 2059644 and DVD 2059648), this is the first EuroArts release in cooperation with the San Francisco Opera, internationally recognized as one of the top opera companies in the world. 'Achingly beautiful, magnificently sung and gorgeously staged...the audience responded with an eight-minute standing ovation,' said the Associated Press in a live concert review. Composer Jake Heggie, in his 'finest creation since Dead Man Walking', and librettist Gene Scheer adapt Herman Melville's magnificent meditation on man and the sea into 'a vibrant, compelling piece of musical theater' (San Francisco Chronicle). Captain Ahab is played by the Grammy-winning tenor Jay Hunter Morris and principal guest conductor Patrick Summers conducts a cast of brilliant singing actors. Bonus material (51 min) includes artist interviews and production timelapse.
