- Stravinsky: Oedipus Rex review by DW
I realise I had taken a look at this a few years ago when I was still a member of LoveFilm, and had run out of patience then with, not the music nor the performances, but with the production values which, to my mind, are not at all suited to Stravinsky's oratorio. I have seen live, staged performances which offered no movement, no sets and definitely no ballet. These productions, one by Northern Opera, I recollect, suited the work perfectly. I'm convinced Stravinsky would have absolutely hated this.
Two stars for Langridge, Norman and Ozawa. As I say, musically,of high quality. but that's where one's praise begins and ends.
