    Incidentally, having heard Le dernier jour d’un condamné in a concert version, I find it no worse than any number of contemporary scores and I actually much prefer it to, say, Prima Donna.

    This must be some sort of quid pro quo for the theater to stage the Alagna opera. I wonder what the part of the bargain might be.

      It has already been staged by the Budapest Opera a few years ago, without Roberto. (You can find it on u-tube).
