  • July 04, 2011 A Riveting work of Passion

    The defects in the score are no greater or less than those of any hand-written score in the days of pre-computer laser printing. The WORK, however, is an excellent and riveting piece of theater, that works, from college workshop, to mainstage opera company production, IF the truth of...

    the times, (17th century) and not the pandering of Miller's anti-McCarthyism (which was subsequently proven true on every count) is the directorial bent. But you can't see this, or hear it without the score. One of Ward's great works.

  • October 08, 2009 Shame on Schirmer

    This score is in such poor condition that I would have thought that I was a bootleg copy. To top that, it is the only one available without buying an original somewhere online. The German translation confuses one of the best American operas of the 20th century. The font used...

    for the English is small and crappy--nearly half the size of the italicized German. The opera deserves a far better printing and those of us who are forced to buy it from Schirmer are disgusted as with so many of their other poorly crafted and incorrect printings of the classics. Please get your act together, Schirmer. Shame on you yet again!!

  • August 01, 2008 Ward's Cruicble

    The piece is really VERY well written, very dramatic, and very vocal. The printed score, however, is very nearly ILLEGIBLE!!! A bad xerox gives better quality. Ward's writing style uses key signatures very sparingly favoring instead MANY accidentals. I have had to guess at MANY of the pitches as...

    there is almost no discernable difference between natural and sharp signs in this copy. Though written below, the GERMAN translation is printed in a larger script than the original ENGLISH, and requires MANY alternative rhythms, confusing the score even more. I was outraged to pay more than $50 for a score which I had to spend hours and hours rewriting so that I might read it and use it for rehearsals.
