Because opera unites the arts, it has always been the most ravishing and extravagant entertainment. And from the very beginning of operatic theater, which is rooted in the choral dances of the Greeks, the spectacle of dance has commanded a significant place in the opera house, whether integrated into the drama or offered as a casual diversion. Ballet, the older art of the two, has played its role in opera ever since nymphs and shepherds cavorted on the Baroque stage.
The fusion of opera and dance peaked in the nineteenth century, whose repertoire has generated this collection of exotic pieces—both familiar and obscure — but each capable of standing alone as an orchestral experience.
The album represents triumphs of artistry — musical and technical.
