In the meantime, this should keep us going...

Written by Dame Ethel Smyth, English composer and leader in the womenís suffrage movement, The Wreckers was first performed in Germany in 1906 and was mounted in the composerís homeland in 1909. This powerful three-act opera about piracy, love, and betrayal in a community of religious fanatics received its U.S. premiere in 2015 at Bard SummerScape in a penetrating production directed by Thaddeus Strassberger, with the American Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Leon Botstein.

Thank you very much. Just the sort of thing I'll need to restore my equilibrium once I'm back from the dentist's tomorrow!

Bless ya, good luck with the tooth-fairy. There's an MP3 of the Bard School rendition now in BIMA amplified to the point of audibility! It benefits from a staged performance...
