This filmed performance of the rarely performed Delius opera, using actors for the visuals and the justly famous Mackerras recording for the sound couldn't be lovelier. The handsome young actors portraying the lovers are age appropriate and the settings and costumes are time appropriate. The famous 'Walk To The Paradise Garden' is one of the most beautiful musical segments in all of opera and here it is paired with the lushly ideal visuals. I'm not a big fan of 'lip-synched' opera but in this case it works very well. If you are an opera lover looking for a 'new' work to experience, this may well be what you are seeking.

This is a brilliant way to enjoy this beautiful work by Delius. The cinemetography is fabulous, and it is filled with breathtaking photography. You will find yourself totally taken away while you watch an opera that is in such a non-standard realistic format. Refreshing, new-- I can't wait for it to come out on DVD, if it ever does. I own a copy of this VHS and wouldn't part with it for any price.

Few 20th century composers have written more haunting music than Frederic Delius. Mostly we are familiar with his orchestral works, but a few scores (his settings of Whitman's poetry and the Mass of Life) are enough to convince us that he is a major composer of vocal music. This recording does full justice to his opera, which has a lot more than the "Walk to the Paradise Gardens." Perhaps someday we will have a video of J. E. Flecker's verse play "Hassan" along with Delius' music, which rivals Grieg's music for Ibsen's "Peer Gynt."
