Ep. 88: The Barrie Kosky Experience

Today’s opera directors are constantly finding ways to reinvent new productions of operas within the repertory, sometimes in strange and eye-catching ways. It can be argued that nobody reimagines opera quite like Australian director, Barrie Kosky, who is known for his provocative production concepts. OAD host, Kyle Homewood, got to witness this process firsthand, and the story is almost too good to believe.

The specific production we discuss in the episode is a 2013 Dutch National Opera production of Armide by Gl├╝ck. As promised in the episode, here are some photos and videos related to the production. Enjoy!
