This production originated at the Lyric Opera House Chicago where its performance was accepted without question. When it came to Covent Garden it was subject to much discussion. Was it an “opera” or a “musical”? Did it really belong in the Opera House? Did it work when performed by proper opera singers rather than musical theatre actors? Did it really need the radio microphones that were used? And, since it was sung in English, why did the production use sur-tities? The critics mused and differed on all these questions, but were almost unanimous in agreeing that the score, with a 50 piece orchestra, conducted by the legendary Paul Gemignani, would probably never be better performed. The physical production was a bit sparse, and the opera chorus occasionally looked uncomfortable when required to “act” - but, all in all, this was regarded as a feather in the cap of the Royal Opera (even if not quite as glorious a feather as the recent Opera North version at Sadler’s Wells.)  (plus)
