Broadcast live on the BBC from Sadlers Wells Theatre on 10 February 1968 Goodall conducted a cast of such luminaries as Alberto Remedios, Norman Bailey, Derek Hammond-Stroud, Gregory Dempsey, Margaret Curphey and Ann Robson. Following the live broadcast the recording sadly disappeared into the archives and has since become one of the most talked about ‘lost’ performances. Music-lovers have regularly contacted Chandos requesting its release on Opera in English and it is one that Sir Peter Moores was determined to make happen. It even led to an appeal for indivduals’ recordings of the broadcast. This 4-CD set has subsequently been re-mastered from a BBC Radio live broadcast. The sound quality reflects the fact it is a 1968 ‘live’ recording and some deterioration is evident although this does not detract from the fantastic performance value.
