Martin Duncan, director / Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin / Daniel Barenboim
"...a magnificent and enthralling work... Birtwistle has created a powerfully melancholic soundworld, at once richly lyrical and hieratic."
""Who is the betrayer? What has been betrayed?" Christ taunts his disciples. And with those words he forces the 11 to re-admit Judas to the circle of apostles... Ultimately Christ and the apostles enter the olive garden. The cock crows. The end. What hardly seems like musico-dramatic material is transformed into an utterly gripping uninterrupted two hours of music theatre thanks to a compelling libretto by Blaser and the unyieldingly riveting music of Birtwistle."
