Notes & Reviews:
"Paul Bunyan" lay untouched for more than thirty years after its poorly-received premiere in 1941. After several revisions, it was performed again in 1976 in a much more assured version. Britten was strongly influenced by contemporary American musicals, and there is a decidedly American flavor to his writing. The cast comes fresh from a successful production at Sadler's Wells.
