 A Maxwell Davies masterpiece October 11, 2014 By MJ Whalley (Howick, QC) See All My Reviews "This is a superb example of contemporary opera, based upon the reconstruction of a historical tragedy, with an original libretto by the composer himself. The music is concentrated and intense, and will repay many listenings." Report Abuse
