Conductor Kazushi Ono
Ravel’s two one-act operas reunited in 2012 director Laurent Pelly and conductor Kazushi Ono, who made their Glyndebourne debuts in 2008 with Humperdinck’s 'Hänsel und Gretel'. While 'l’Enfant et les Sortilèges' shares with that opera a child’s-eye view of a sometimes threatening world, 'l’HeureEspagnole' is a thoroughly adult confection. Pelly addresses Ravel’s very different operas with imagination, wit and –when required – humanity.
Running time 136 minutes
Subtitles English, French, German, Spanish, Italian.
