There are reasons for the relative obscurity of Weberís Euryanthe. The libretto is full of cringe-inducing rhymes and the story, which hinges on the imperative of feminine fidelity, is hard to like.
Vera Nemirovaís new production tackles the problems head on and triumphs. With Jun M‰rklís lean, intelligent conducting and a cast of stars, this is a landmark interpretation.
