For those who missed the last wodge of English-language opera on Swiss Internet Radio, or who caught and enjoyed it, there is another juicy selection coming up tomorrow (Tuesday 7th May):

00:37 Hans Pfitzner - Palestrina (1988) Berlin Classics (D)
 04:00 Richard Strauss - Die Ägyptische Helena (2001) Dynamic (D) - 1st recording
 06:03 Richard Strauss - Die Liebe der Danae (2000) Telarc (D)
 08:40 Ralph Vaughan Williams - Riders to the Sea (1995) Chandos (E)
 09:22 Douglas Moore - Carry Nation (1968) Bay Cities (E) - 1st recording
 11:26 Marc Blitzstein - Regina (1991) London Records (E)
 13:58 Benjamin Britten - Owen Wingrave (1970) London Records (E)

 23:30 Robert Ward - The Crucible (1989) Albany Records (E)

 01:20 Carlisle Floyd - Susannah (1993) Virgin Classics (E)

A Marc Blitzstein work that ISN'T "And the cradle will rock"!!  Tippett's astonishing THE ICE BREAK. And Robert Ward's THE CRUCIBLE - a work I rate very highly indeed! Smiley)  And Carlisle Floyd's super SUSANNAH for the night owls Smiley)

Entirely free to listen!  Here it is!  You will need a compatible audio program - VLC works perfectly Smiley
