This recording came from the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence at the occasion of the festival’s 60th anniversary in 2008. A co production with the Wiener Festwochen (Vienna) where it received its premiere in May 2006, this production is a truly international staging and opera producer Peter Sellars guarantees high-class intelligent entertainment. Ekaterina Lekhina as the title heroine, Sean Pannikkar as her lover Gomatz fight against Sultan Soliman (Russell Thomas) and his servant Osmin (Morris Robinson). The cast is made up of astonishingly well-acting singers and together with the impressive set (Georges Tsypin) and costumes (Gabriel Berry), they make up for an audiovisual delight.
