Phaedra was Henze 's penultimate opera, and this item presents the full score, with the entire work lasting around 75 minutes. Featuring a unique libretto by Christian Lehnert and sound effects by Francesco Antonioni, this opera presents the wonderful story of Phaedra, filled with drama and fantastic music. This Full Score  presents the work in German and English language, and features detailed instructions for the supplied CD, on which some sound effects are included that are to be used in conjunction with the instruments. Phaedrawas co-commissioned and co-produced by Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin, Berliner Festspiele, Theatre de la Monnaie Brussels, Alte Oper Frankfurt and Wiener Festwochen. Hans Werner Henze  was a hugely prolific composer who drew influences from a wide number of sources. Phaedra is regarded as among his greatest works and would certainly make for a stunning performance.
