Adapted from Thomas Mann's 1912 novella, Death in Venice was Benjamin Britten's last opera, the composer insisting on it's completion while delaying badly needed heart surgery. The starkly simple narrative of a famous but failing novelist travelling to Venice to seek inspiration only to find unhealthy infatuation and deadly cholera, is given a chamber-like precision and clarity through Britten's score, becoming a haunting drama filled with musical symbols, disquieting mystery and richly evocative atmospheres of Venice and it's strange characters. Willy Decker's Teatro Real production was described as 'one of his most brilliant stage works... a remarkable technical feat.'
