Preview: Sir John In Love, Coliseum, London

The crazy citizens of Windsor
By Michael Church [The Independent, 2 March 2006]
Stand by for an operatic rarity: Vaughan Williams’s Sir John in Love, composed in 1928, last professionally performed in Britain in 1958, and now being brought out of the attic by that directorial rarity Ian Judge. He has been busy of late abroad: time was when he was much in demand at the RSC, and at sundry British opera companies including English National Opera.
