Notes and Editorial Reviews

This "Enhanced CD" explores the history of the story and its adaptation. It also includes biographies of the composer, cast and librettists and a libretto that scrolls in synch with the audio portion of the CD.

-----

REVIEW:

This is a well considered and enjoyable performance of an opera which tends to lie on the edge of the repertoire. My dreams of ideal performers of the leading roles are probably unrealistic and this is probably as good as it is reasonable to expect.
