L'heure espagnole - full opera
L'heure espagnole (Ravel), 2012 • 52m
L’heure espagnole is a heat-soaked farce – youthful, sexy, ebullient – in which a lusty Spanish woman juggles lovers while her husband is preoccupied with clockwork mechanisms. Ravel evokes a Spanish flavour through his use of native dance forms including the jota, the habañera and the malagueña.
Recorded live at Glyndebourne Opera House, Festival 2012.
