Notes & Reviews:

"This recording is taken from a 2006 Glyndebourne production directed by Daniel Slater and Robert Innes Hopkins that must have been a blast, based on the frequent explosions of audience laughter. The entire cast (which is largely Russian) performs with completely mastery of the complex score and with the wild abandon needed to bring the far-fetched story fully to life. It's very much an ensemble piece and it succeeds because there are no weak links." -All Music Guide
