Description: This is a live recording of a performance given in the Theatre Royal in Copenhagen on Sept. 15, 1949 with all but two performers members of the original cast for its premiere 27 months earlier. The tape is part of a recently accessed sound archive - The Hegermann-Lindencrone Tape Archive - at the Royal Theatre, begun by a young Dane in the very year of this performance (wonder what else might be among its 1500 performances, recorded over 40 years?). The sound is quite good and should interest historical collectors and Britten specialists. Eleven pages of notes in addition to the complete libretto. 3 CDs. Peter Pears (tenor), Nancy Evans (soprano), Dennis Dowling (baritone), English Opera Group; Benjamin Britten.
