Description
In his 80th year, Hans Werner Henze premiered this ravishing, fairy tale opera (English title: The Hoopoe and the Triumph of Filial Love) to great acclaim at the 2003 Salzburg festival.

"L'Upupa doesn't compromise Henze's overly generous musical style (a lot goes on in the orchestra all the time) but is also movingly generous of spirit and often just plain gorgeous. The winning performance includes John Mark Ainsley as an irresistibly cranky angel, Laura Aikin as the stunningly athletic heroine and the wide-eyed, captivating Matthias Goerne as the hero."—LATimes

"Over a wonderfully iconoclastic career, Henze has often downplayed his Germanic birthright in favor of Italianate lyricism and Stravinskyian piquancy. For his operatic finale … [Henze] returned to a German tradition, specifically, 'The Magic Flute'…. Goerne, not only a top singer of lieder but an experienced Papageno, takes the role of Kasim…. Henze's orchestration matches the sets and costumes in kaleidoscopic, contrapuntal atmosphere, and there's a blue-hued orchestral coda that serves as Henze's long good-bye to his operatic art. The picture and surround sound … are state-of-the-art."—Newark Star-Ledger
