“When The New Sadlers Wells Opera previewed their new production of The Merry Widow in a new English translation by Nigel Douglas, it was an instant hit. Therefore it is befitting that JAY should have recorded the original cast of that production as part of it’s operettas in English, the others being; The Count Of Luxembourg, The Countess Maritza and Orpheus In The Underworld (coming soon).
This recording stars Opera Diva Eiddwin Harrhy as Hanna Glawari. All the worlds favourite music is here given new English translation; Words Forbidden, Just As The Sun Awakens, Vilja and Off To Old Maxims.”
