Julie Taymor (stage director), Seiji Ozawa (conductor) – With Jessye Norman (Yocasta), Bryn Terfel (Creon), Philip Langridge (Oedipus)...
A masterful Japanese production featuring Julie Taymor’s costumes and image-rich sets (worthy of Chéreau or Wieland Wagner!), Seiji Ozawa’s direction, and an impressive vocal cast (a stunning Jessye Norman as Jocasta, the tenor Philip Langridge as Oedipus, Bryn Terfel as Creon). “We singers have a different level of responsibility from other musicians. We have words that we must convey; we have meanings that we must convey through these lyrics” affirms the soprano – a particularly big responsibility for this adaptation of the Greek tragedy in which the value of words did not escape the Russian composer.
