1995 NR

Recorded at the Glyndebourne Festival Opera in 1995, this acclaimed presentation of composer Gioacchino Rossini's epic opus is based on Jean Racine's play "Andromache." Set in Troy after the city fell to the Greeks, the production recounts the rancorous battle between widow Andromache (Diana Montague) and Helen of Troy's green-eyed daughter, Ermione (Anna Caterina Antonacci), for the love of Pyrrhus (Jorge Lopez-Yanez).
