Welcome to harmonia mundi, United Kingdom store
- Ravel’s two one-act operas reunited in 2012 director Laurent Pelly and conductor Kazushi Ono, who made their Glyndebourne debuts in 2008 with Humperdinck’s 'Hänsel und Gretel'.
While 'l’Enfant et les Sortilèges' shares with that opera a child’s-eye view of a sometimes threatening world, 'l’Heure Espagnole' is a thoroughly adult confection. Pelly addresses Ravel’s very different operas with imagination, wit and – when required – humanity.
These productions were streamed live on the Guardian's website, see the link for an excellent synopsis [http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2012/aug/14/glyndebourne-2012-ravel-double-bill-synopsis-cast-creatives] and given in concert performance at the Proms 2012 to rapturous acclaim.
