Anja Kampe movingly portrays the brave and loving Leonore with Torsten Kerl as Florestan both making notable British stage debuts in Deborah Warner’s award-winning production, conducted by Mark Elder.

"This superb recording of Beethoven’s only opera was made live at Glyndebourne in 2006. In the theatre, the production (directed by Deborah Warner) offered one of the most powerful interpretations of the opera I have seen, and the visceral excitement it generated translates on to disc."
