Editor's NoteAcclaimed stars permeate this English National Opera production of Handel's comic opera "Xerxes" -- from director Nicholas Hytner to stars Ann Murray (playing Xerxes) and Valerie Masterson (playing Romilda.) It's no wonder then that it won the Laurence Olivier Opera Award for its staging innovations and fantastic performances. Other exciting updates to this opera classic include a modern recreation of the Vauxhall Gardens setting, and a new edition of the composition, prepared by the conductor himself.
