Dacapo Records, the national Danish recording company, is proud to present

the Antichrist, a spectacular co-production with the Royal Danish Opera and
the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) from 2002. No punches are pulled as
the composer's breathtaking revelation unfolds with its intriguing allegorical
characters and its powerful statement about the moral decay of modern society.
Bonus material includes the 20-minute film Langgaard and Antichrist--The
Rocky Road from Idea to World Premiere and a commentary track by conductor
Thomas Dausgaard and stage director Staffan Valdemar Holm.
