Magdalena in a live recording of the highlight of the 2016-17 season at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris: the colourful and imaginative production of Monteverdi’s Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria (The return of Ulysses to his homeland), conducted by Emmanuelle Haïm, directed by Mariame Clément and starring Rolando Villazón as the Ancient Greek warrior Ulisse and Magdalena as his patient wife Penelope.
Magdalena sings her beloved Mélisande in this highly anticipated new recording of Debussy’s evocative opera Pelléas et Mélisande. It was captured in January 2016 during performances of an innovative collaboration between Sir Simon Rattle and Peter Sellars, two of the boldest creative minds in music and theatre today. Rattle leads London Symphony Orchestra and an all-star cast supported by the London Symphony Chorus, prepared by renowned choral director Simon Halsey.
