Robert Lepage’s acclaimed production, filmed in high-definition by Brian Large at the Royal Opera House, showcases the brilliant performances of a superb cast: Simon Keenlyside in his Olivier award-winning role as Winston Smith, Nancy Gustafson as Julia, Richard Margison as O’Brien, Diana Damrau as the Gym Instructress and Lawrence Brownlee as Syme.

The DVD includes subtitles in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian, and an exclusive 30-minute bonus feature with Maestro Maazel introducing the work.
