Death in Venice
Opera in Due Atti, Op. 88Unknown - 2010
"Apollonian appreciation of beauty leads to a sensous response and to the Dionysiac abyss in Britten's last opera. ... 'Aschenbach is destroyed physically by the plague, spiritually by an ifatuation for the boy Tadizio that is ultimately a betrayal of his lifelong devotion to an ordered beauty, free from the excesses of unbridled passion'"--Container.
