Glyndebourne’s last visit to the Festival was notable for the first Scottish appearance by Joan Sutherland after her rise to stardom. One of the earlier performances in Sussex, with the same cast, was recorded, and appeared for the first time on CD in 2011, so we can hear just how good the production was.
