Baptista, a rich Paduan merchant, announces that his fair young daughter, Bianca, will remain unwed until her older sister, Katharina, a hellish shrew, has wed. An unabridged cast performance of Shakespeare's comedy about the courtship of Petruchio, a gentleman of Verona, and Katherina, the headstrong, obdurate shrew.
(P)2011 Saland Publishing
This is a good, hearty, boisterous production of the play, with great central performances from the actors playing Petruchio and Katherina. The text is indeed unabridged.
As often seems to be the case with the publisher Saland, the recording appears to have been mastered from a vinyl source, so the audio quality is a little rough, with lots of crackles. However, there are no major flaws.
