A rare sighting of a new opera recordingmain
Erato tell us they have spent the last three days recording Berlioz’s Les Troyens in Strasbourg.
It involved the Strasbourg Philharmonic Orchestra, three choirs and sixteen soloists over two five-hour concerts with conductor John Nelson, a total of 239 musicians.
The headline artists are the US mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato and tenor Michael Spyres and the French-Canadian contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux.
The set will be released in November.
