Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
Opera News (9/00, p.96) - "...the performance is a fine one, with attention focused...on Baker's interpretion - intense but controlled, carefully detailed but never fussy....Joy Roberts [is] a fresh-sounding Sophie, Patrick Wheatley a correct, quietly frighteningly Albert."
