The disc is expensive because it is an import, the 136-page booklet includes the full libretto in four languages (English, Spanish, German, French, each available in subtitles), and modest sales are projected.

Customarily in DVD specs the time of 111 minutes would apply to the opera length. But actually the opera extends 77 minutes, plus curtain calls, leaving 30 minutes for two interviews with composer Cristobal Halffter (born 1930) and librettist Juan Carlos Marset. Presented without break, the opera is in five scenes (constituting the real content, totaling more than an hour) plus a Prelude and four Interludes which are staged but nonverbal.

THEATER AND CAST

The Theater Kiel is of moderate size. The lip of the stage extends over the rear of the orchestra pit, which is indeed a round pit--meaning the musicians are about the conductor rather than extending left to right. And performers must be alert not to go over the edge! The orchestra is visible in some shots to good effect, providing relief from the minimalist stage set.

The cast of eight may be considered six Germans and two Koreans, all coached to sing in Spanish. Judas is sung by Friedmann Kunder (I'd say, in his fifties, a big man with lots of white hair, probably violating your image of Judas). Kunder, either accidentally or at his request, is omitted from the Biographies. Jorg Sabrowski (Lazarus) communicates as actor, while the two sopranos just go through the motions. The singers appearing as the four guards later double as four apostles, so don't get confused.

MUSIC AND LIBRETTO

Halffter's tonal music is elaborately, but not grossly, orchestrated. He says he spent three days orchestrating 14 seconds of music.
