REVIEW

"...For those who never knew London, saw him perform or benefited from his advice, a new documentary film from
Read more Arthaus Musik, “Between Gods and Demons,” now on DVD, explains a great deal about his magnetic personality, pursuit of perfection and unsparing self-criticism as he developed his own performance style. Even London’s most enthusiastic admirers may be surprised at how much material has been discovered in radio, television and opera house archives, all of it gathered here in a 90-minute collection of indispensable performances...It’s also fascinating to follow London as he developed his interpretation of Don Giovanni over the years, thanks to the clips drawn from performances of a role that spanned his entire career. He always communicated a sense of danger as he moved about the stage in this opera, positively reveling in the character’s elemental eroticism."
