Hector Berlioz' grand opera Les Troyens is given an appropriately grand treatment in this production by the renowned Catalan theater group "La Fura dels Baus" under Carlus Padrissa recorded at Valencia's Palau de les Arts. In the first part, Padrissa plays with the present-day meaning of Trojans as computer viruses; in the second, he takes us to a future civilization headed towards self-destruction. The production is a triumph for Valery Gergiev, who conducts "with impressive energy" (FAZ), and for the grandiose, world-famous lead singers Daniela Barcellona, Elisabete Matos and Stephen Gould.
