Enjoy the world premiere of the full and original version of Merlin by Isaac Albeniz, over a century after he completed the work. Albeniz composed this 'Wagnerian' opera to an English libretto by his patron Francis Burdett Money-Coutts between 1898 and 1902. Many believed the score was lost, until the conductor Jose De Eusebio reconstructed it from various manuscript sources and publishers' proofs. For this stunning production director John Drew created a world of magic and fantasy, using evocative sets, and splendid lighting.

Bonus feature:

- Interviews with David Wilson-Johnson, Eva Marton and conductor Jose de Eusebio
