Features


Thomas Ades' The Tempest, one of the most striking and successful operas of recent years, is available for the first time as a beautifully produced, limited-edition full score. Featuring the stunning image 'Octopus' by artist Claire Burbridge, this unique cased edition includes color plates of exclusive images from Ades' original handwritten score and sketches. Each copy is signed and numbered by the composer. From the turbulent orchestral prelude with which it begins to Ariel's stratospheric yet ethereal 'Five Fathoms Deep' and the radiant quintet of reconciliation in its final act, Thomas Ades conjures up a wholly compelling musical world in The Tempest. Responding to librettist Meredith Oakes' clear, unfussy refashioning of Shakespeare into formalized rhyme schemes, Ades has created a new kind of tonal language that is both direct and communicative but also indelibly contemporary.* Limited 250 copies available, with signed and numbered limitation page. * Endpapers feature original artwork 'The Firmament' by Claire Burbridge. * Cover case features original artwork 'Octopus' by Claire Burbridge. * Black book-block edges, ribbon and head & tail bands.
