Director Katharina Thoma sets Richard Strauss's comedy in a country house in the South Downs (a surrogate for Glyndebourne), immediately before and during the Second World War. Hofmannsthals' conceit - that a hapless young composer has to accept the simultaneous performance of his new tragic opera with a burlesque from a commedia dell'arte troupe - is turned into a touching wartime drama of nurses, invalids, airmen - and of painful delusions and soul-searching, before final happiness.

Excellent cast led by Thomas Allen as the Music Master and Soile Isokoski as Ariadne.

Extra features: When Two Worlds Collide, Thomas Allen at Glyndebourne, Vladimir Jurowski on his final production as Music Director and a cast gallery.

Running time: 128 minutes

Subtitles: EN/FR/DE/KO

Sound format: 2.0LPCM + 5.1(5.0) DTS
