The Rake's Progress: Theatre Royal De La Monnaie, Brussels (Ono) Blu-ray
Directed by Robert Lepage
Stravinsky's masterwork, created for La Fenice in Venice in 1951, is based on a libretto by W.
H. Auden and Chester Kallman, inspired by a series of 18th century prints by William Hogarth.
This 2007 production from La Monnaie-De Munt 'jazzifies' the setting by replacing Hogarth's sin city, London, with 1950s Las Vegas, turning it into a glittering, cinematic gallery of tableaux vivants inspired by the early days of television.
The conductor is Kazushi Ono while the stage direction comes from the celebrated Robert Lepage.
