Product Details


Britten's last opera, Death in Venice, is based on the short story by Thomas Mann. It follows the inner turmoil of the aging novelist Gustav von Aschenbach, who becomes infatuated by a boy he sees on the beach in Venice. Unable to confess his love, he dies as the city is ravaged by plague. Full of atmosphere and intense soundscapes, the simple yet subtle motives pull the opera together with great sureness of touch.
