Arthur Schnitzler’s controversial 1897 play of sexual manners was not to receive its first production until 1920. With a clever structure that unites all the classes through sex and comments on the nature of society’s pretensions, it has inspired several film adaptations. This production is a lavish and prestigious affair. It features music by Carl Davis (sung by Kiri Te Kanawa), a superb cast and exquisite fin-de-siècle designs, which provide a suitably erotic visual flair to the proceedings.
