Listen to a Sample:



  • First off, the performance is in English! And if that weren't enough to sell you on this recording, this is also happens to be one of the most hot-blooded performances of this work I have ever heard.
  • Pauline Tinsley is simply astonishing in the title role, delivering unflagging intensity interspersed with moments of ravishing beauty.
  • A young Anne Evans is radiant as Chrysothemis.
  • Willard White offers rich, burnished tones and impeccable English diction as Orest.
  • Richard Armstrong commands power and precision from the orchestra.


  • None to mention.
