As many of you know, I am a big fan of Opera in English.  When it is done well it can provide an immediacy that cannot be replicated by subtitles.

So I am featuring all of my recordings of opera in English this week.  This includes operas written in English as well as operas in translation.

A New Carmen

Featuring Kiri Te Kanawa
 

Kiri Te Kanawa was only 25 when this recording of Carmen was performed, but it was already clear that she was a major talent.  Hers is not a conventional Carmen but her pure Mozartian soprano make the role more akin to a "Lolita" than femme fatale.

Der Rosenkavalier with Dernesch, Baker and Harwood

In addition to our new Carmen, I am happy to offer this recording of Der Rosenkavalier as our newest free download.

It features Helga Dernesch as the Marschallin, Janet Baker as Octavian and Elizabeth Harwood as Sophie and, you guessed it, it is in English.  The sound is superb!
