The Rake's Progress DVD 2010
In this celebrated Glyndebourne Festival production, David Hockney's designs for director John Cox reinterpret the Hogarth etchings that inspired the operas libretto, written for Stravinsky by W.H. Auden and Chester Kallman. In 2010, this revival under Glyndebourne's Music Director, Vladimir Jurowski, captured the operas neo-classical spirit and its juxtaposition of whimsy, cynicism and compassion, prompting the Financial Times to call it, as enjoyable a performance of Stravinsky's opera as any that has come along".
