Schoenberg's only full-length opera, based on the Biblical story of the exodus, was left incomplete at the time of his death. It is stunningly brought to life here in its Met premiere run, conducted by James Levine, who brings out all of the score's emotional intensity. John Tomlinson is Moses, the man appointed by God to lead his chosen people out of bondage and to worship its one, true, invisible Lord. 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
