The Makropulos Case focuses on the issue of longevity - the pros and cons of living for 337 years, as happens to the mysterious Emilia Marty, the sexually irresistible prima donna who's seen it all and done it all.

Part grotesque human comedy, part profound human tragedy, this opera examines the eternal mystery of human existence with uniquely life-enhancing vision.

Glyndebourne Festival Opera, conducted by Andrew Davis.
