Opus Arte releases Hippolyte et Aricie DVD featuring Ed Lyon

Last month, Opus Arte released the DVD of the Glyndebourne staging of the opera Hippolyte et Aricie, featuring Ed Lyon as the young lover Hippolytus.

The opera, which was directed by Jonathan Kent, is Rameau’s inventive take on Racine’s great tragedy Phèdre.

The performances received excellent critical acclaim, including from the Times, which said:

“Rameau’s reason is one reason to hasten to East Sussex. Another is Jonathan Kent’s inventive staging.”
