Synopsis:
Tony Palmer's film of Benjamin Britten's opera 'Death in Venice', shot on location, is released on video for the first time on the director's own label. Based on Thomas Mann's masterly novella - also the source for Visconti's famous movie - it follows the last days of a writer, disillusioned, in despair and nearing death, in disease-ridden Venice. The cast includes Robert Gard as Gustav von Aschenbach, John Shirley-Quirk as The Traveller, James Bowman as The Voice of Apollo, Vincent Redman as Tadzio, the object of Aschenbach's infatuation, and Deanne Bergsma as Tadzio's Mother. Steuart Bedford conducts the English Chamber Orchestra, and Peter Pears makes a special appearance.
