Notes & Reviews:

"This splendid set is something of a home-coming for English Rossini lovers, many of whom will recall with affection the production of 'The Thieving Magpie' Sadler's Wells staged in the mid-1960s when little was known of this gripping and affecting 'melodramma in musica' other than its celebrated overture." - Richard Osborne, Gramophone
