  • Production

    Marie Tyso had appeared in several other operas for the ABC. She was used to doing them live but this one involved pre-recorded music. "It was a much better way to do it," she said. "Of course, we now had to mime during the performance. We did the dialogue live. Alan Burke was the producer – he was wonderful to work with."

    It was the sixth opera broadcast live from the ABC in Sydney and the first two hour one done live in Australia. Settings for the four acts were devised in one unit to enable aimed at keeping the action moving continuously.

    Reception

    The critic for The Sydney Morning Herald praised the singing and set, saying it was "a distinguished live telecast ... producer Alan Burke boldly moved his cast about through ... [the] elaborate and fanciful set with great zest and speed."
