Carsen’s slyly-funny, bold-conceived production pits the school-age lovers against saracen teachers and their St Trinians sirens. Music-making is superb, surely vintage-Glyndebourne; the leads are well-cast and the OAE responds electrically to Dantone’s direction. The high-definition cameras miss nothing, and this easily becomes the prime recommendation for this opera in this format.
