Opus Arte to Release World Premiere of Birtwistle’s Minotaur on DVD

September 1, 2008

Opus Arte, the DVD company owned by the Royal Opera House, is to release Covent Garden's acclaimed production of Sir Harrison Birtwistle's The Minotaur on 1 October 2008.

Given its world premiere in April of this year, The Minotaur opened to almost universally positive reviews: The Independent described it as 'a glittering success', while Stephen Graham, writing for this site [Musicalcriticism.com], said that it was 'a moment in which contemporary music could demonstrate its vitality and pertinence'.
