REUTER RIIS PETERSON KRISTENSEN STAUGAARD OLBERG SCHREIBER RESMARK BRUUN KRAMP ROYAL DANISH ORCHESTRA & OPERA

This outstanding production of Carl Nielsen’s 1901 opera Saul & David is presented here on DVD. The performance recorded here is conducted by Michael Schonwandt, who is a Nielsen expert. The singers in this production are among Denmark’s finest, including Johan Reuter as King Saul, Niels-Jorgen Riis as David and Ann Peterson as Mikal. This production has gained critical acclaim. “Johan Reuter is overwhelmingly good in what may be the best role of his life.” (Opernwelt) “The renowned Nielsen interpreter Michael Schonwandt conducted with great love for the music that never smothered it: drawing warm and polished playing from the orchestra, he gave the impression of really channeling and shaping the music as it pulsed through him.” (Opera Magazine)
