Schoenberg's only full-length opera, based on the Biblical story of the exodus, was left incomplete at the time of his death.

His brother Aron (Philip Langridge) dazzles the people by working miracles and makes them worship a golden calf--leaving Moses in despair about his mission

Pears is joined by two other veterans of the opera's world premiere--John Shirley-Quirk, who plays the seven characters that propel Aschenbach to his destiny, and conductor Steuart Bedford
