The Royal Opera House

Stravinsky: The Rake's Progress DVD (Glyndebourne)

In this celebrated Glyndebourne Festival production, David Hockney's designs for director John Cox reinterpret the Hogarth etchings that inspired the opera's libretto, written for Stravinsky by W.H.Auden and Chester Kallman. In 2010, this revival under Glyndebourne's Music Director, Vladimir Jurowski, again captured the opera's neo-Classical spirit and its juxaposition of whimsy, cynicism and compassion, prompting the Daily Telegraph to call it 'the classic version of the opera against which all others will inevitably be measured.'
