Iolanta : Ekaterina Scherbachenko (Iolanta) - Alexej Markov (Robert) - Pavel Cernoch (Vaudémont) - Dmitry Ulianov (Le Roi René)... - Perséphone : Dominique Blanc (Perséphone) - Paul Groves (Eumolpe) - Ch. & Orch. de Teatro Real - Teodor Currentzis, dir.
Unanimously acclaimed, Peter Sellars' new production of these two masterpieces was one of the great highlights of Gerard Mortier's season at the Teatro Real. The orchestra and cast, including Ekaterina Scherbachenko and Paul Groves, are lifted to rare heights of poetic expression under the daring and insightful baton of Teodor Currentzis.
