Product Details


Thomas Adès and Philip Hensher's dazzlingly precocious chamber opera Powder Her Face propelled its composer to international attention after its premiere in 1995 and remains one of the most frequently performed British operas of the last two decades. Charting the glamorous rise and seedy fall of the notorious socialite beauty Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, the score is as witty, poignant, and memorable as the "Dirty Duchess" herself, paying homage to the popular idioms of cabaret and tango, as well as to Weill, Berg, and Stravinsky.
