“When he sings he opens a formidable treasure chest of intelligent artistry. The voice is resonant, flexible and smooth, wide in range, and he applies it with deep, searching thoughtfulness to whatever he happens to be tackling. The baritone Rodney Gilfry is an artist of the first order.” Stephen Pettitt, Financial Times

  • A wonderful array of stars, including Rodney Gilfry, Isabel Rey and László Polgár is assembled for this production of Debussy’s only finished full-length opera.
  • This production was created by the German actor and stage director Sven-Eric Bechtolf, who belongs to the most celebrated stage actors in Germany, Switzerland and Austria (currently engaged at the famous Burgtheater in Vienna).
  • For around 5 years he has collaborated closely with the Zurich Opera and in 2007 will make his debut at the Vienna State Opera with “Der Ring des Nibelungen” under the musical direction of Franz Welser-Möst.
