Notes and Editorial Reviews

3-CDs + Blu-ray Audio disc, in a deluxe hardback presentation with “An introduction to the Opera and its Leitmotifs” and an essay by the recording’s producer, John Culshaw, "Observations on the Characters, music and recording,” illustrated with sketches of his ‘imagined settings’ for the recording.
