Set in the early 1990s, this remarkable chamber opera takes its inspiration from the avaricious exploits of an English duchess. While living at the Dorchester Hotel in London, the elderly royal recalls a lifetime of sexual and monetary desires─unaware of her impending eviction and the staff's disdain for her. Heather Buck, Daniel Norman and Graeme Broadbent star; conducted and composed by Thomas Adès. 161 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; "making of" documentary.
