Summary "This lavish, cinematic realization of Stravinsky's neo-classic masterpiece, performed in English, is filmed both in studio and on location. Barbara Hendricks and Håkon Hagegård, as Anne Trulove and Nick Shadow, carry on an uneven struggle for the soul of the young and innocent Tom Rakewell, sung by American tenor Greg Fedderly. The imaginative richness in the music is complemented by costumes and sets which are, by turn, exquisitely garish and darkly grotesque to intoxicating effect"--Container.
