This is the second year of the production originally mounted for Von Stade with Domingo. I hadn’t noticed until preparing this list that the production is by Tim Albery who is also responsible for this coming season’s Midsummer Night’s Dream for the Britten centenary. It’s not often that anything in English translation is on Sirius, but this is. Now if only they could have some of much worthier English translation evenings like Arabella and Cosi fan tutte with Steber and some of the great Boris Godunovs of the 1950s and 60s.
