 Robert and Elizabeth / Original London Cast March 7, 2013 By kenneth b. (kennington park place, london) See All My Reviews "Very pleased with this CD. 'Robert and Elizabeth' is based on The Barretts of Wimpole Street. There are many fine musical numbers including the Overture, I Know Now, and the catchy Pass the Eau De Cologne." Report Abuse
 Operetta lives! November 24, 2012 By Alec R. See All My Reviews "A dear friend of mine who has a fine soprano voice, and with whom I have performed in G & S, operettas and musicals, lent me her recording of this many years ago. It is written in the so-called old-fashioned style! It contains lovely music and is of course the love story of the great English poets, Robert and Elizabeth Browning. I have recently been looking for recordings of June Bronhill, whose Offenbach & Lehar recordings I grew up with. I haven't been able before to find any recording on CD and when I tried Arkiv today I leapt with joy! Keith Michell and June Bronhill are marvellous together. If you love fine music and singing of any theatree genre, you'll love this-unless you don't have a romantic bone in your body!" Report Abuse
 47 years in the coming! April 10, 2012 By Bridget S. (York, United Kingdom) See All My Reviews "I gave my LP of Robert and Elizabeth to my American friend in 1965...it's taken this long and Arkiv Music to find it again!! It's a wonderful musical and should be revived on the West End stage. There isn't a bad song in it." Report Abuse
