Through the eye of French director Laurent Pelly this expression of Berlioz’s undying admiration for the Bard — his adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing as an opéra comique — becomes ‘an elegant treatise on love and music designed in shades of grey with 50s-era costumes’ (Sunday Express 4 Stars). Housed by designer Barbara de Limburg in a series of oversized boxes, it’s ‘terribly chic, terribly pretty’ (The Spectator). Soaring over the ‘warmly graceful playing of the London Philharmonic’, Paul Appleby sings ‘attractively’ as Bénédict and Stéphanie d’Oustrac ‘makes a marvellously wiry and fiery Béatrice, singing with charm and acting with gusto’ (The Telegraph). Sales Points * Béatrice et Bénédict is based on Much Ado About Nothing * Berlioz’ final opera & expression of his life-long passion for the Shakespeare "…delivered with sumptuous assurance ..." (The Times) "Paul Appleby and Stéphanie d’Oustrac excel in the title roles" (Music OMH) "The choral singing thrills, and, in the pit, Antonello Manacorda proves to be an excellent Berliozian, getting classy playing from the London Philharmonic, on wonderful form." (The Guardian) "The production has much to say musically. Conductor Antonello Manacorda sets the mood with an overture deftly caught between Gallic whimsy and the unexpectedly sober beauty that anticipates the opera’s exquisite nocturne." (The Spectator) "The evening’s best element is Berlioz’s score, witty, exciting, charming and just sheerly beautiful by turns, which the principals, the top-quality Glyndebourne Chorus, and the excellent London Philharmonic Orchestra all deliver with spirit under the focused baton of conductor Antonello Manacorda." (The Stage) "Berlioz described his score as “a caprice written with the point of a needle” and its sparkling detail is skilfully worked by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Antonello Manacorda conducts temperately, while his cast weave words and music together with needlepoint clarity." (The Financial Times) "Stephanie d’Oustrac and Paul Appleby are irresistible in the title roles – her delicate vocal control and his generous tenor warmth make entirely credible the way her fizzing fury and his defiant cynicism are gradually eroded to reveal passionately beating hearts." (The Independent)
