Not strictly a new recording but a recording that is new to me.

Whilst listening to a CD of the EMI Classics Plasson version of Manon by Massenet, I was reminded of my introduction to the opera from a recording I made in the late 1970s from a BBC Radio 3 broadcast from the English National Opera of a performance in English translation. In the course of a Google search I found a recording in English and, on the same site, happily stumbled on a recording of Benjamin's 195O award winning opera A Tale Of Two Cities, first performed at the Festival of Britain in 1951.

There is a recording from a radio broadcast of extracts in the British and Irish music catalogue accessible from this site.  This 'new' recording appears to be from a 1957 TV broadcast.

I intend to download this, along with the English Manon, but am not able to do so at the time of posting.
