Product Description

On this world premiere recording, Grammy-winning tenor Jay Hunter Morris plays the role of Captain Ahab in Herman Meville's epic tale of a fierce, obsessive whaling-boat captain who descends into madness and puts his crew in mortal danger is brought to the stage in this thrilling production from San Francisco Opera. Composer Jake Heggie is in his 'finest creation since Dead Man Walking,' and librettist Gene Scheer adaptation is 'a vibrant, compelling piece of musical theater' (San Francisco Chronicle).

Review

Frank Zamacona's video work captures the detail and emotional strength of Leonard Foglia's direction, and the seasoned and secured cast under the excellent leadership of Patrick Summers functions both vocally and dramatically as a fully invested ensemble...Very highly recommended. --Judith Malafronte, Opera News

If you did not make it to the Kennedy Center, you can get a very good impression of this work from the excellent DVD of the San Francisco Opera production produced by EuroArts. If you play it on a large screen, you may even be able to experience some of the theatrical impact. I would like to add that Moby-Dick has a broad age-range appeal. My 16-year-old daughter, who accompanied me, liked it very much. When I played the DVD at home, two of my other children-ages nine and 14-gathered on their own to view it, were immediately engaged, and did not move for extended periods of time. --Robert R Reilly

Moby-Dick emerges as an opera that has everything, and takes its place alongside the esteemed oceanic operas Billy Budd and L'amour de loin. --Gramophone Magazine, February 2014 - Editor's Choice
