Summary
"A grand opera that dominated the stages of Europe for most of the 19th century, Robert le diable, Giacomo Meyerveer's great spectacle and audaciously entertaining moral fable, is given new life in Director Laurent Pelly's colourful new staging for the Royal Opera. The wonderful score includes brilliant arias, dramatic ensembles, rousing choruses and a ballet of ghostly nuns, and with the wavering hero of the title sung by Bryan Hymel, acclaimed for his role as Enee in Les Troyens for the Royal Opera and the Metropolitan Opera, this is an unmissable experience. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound"--Container
