lack of dialog a bit dissappointing
on February 29, 2000
though the music on this CD is quite good, I found that the recording lacked the dialog of the play. This seems odd given that the other D'Oyly Carte recordings include them. The fact that this is not mentioned in any of the blurbs at amazon nor even on the label itself leaves me curious and not a little annoyed, as the dialog is as important to the operetta as the musical numbers.
