In the late 1960s the Royal Opera House mounted a composite "Orfeo" for Marilyn Horne, with her darkly brilliant timbre, huge range and spectacular coloratura technique. A latter-day Viardot, Horne is indeed mightily impressive, imperious in her bravura showpiece, complete with the surreal two-octave cadenza concocted by Viardot and Saint-Saens, passionate in her encounter with the Furies . . . Pilar Lorengar makes a sympathetic . . . Eurydice, Helen Donath a charming Cupid.
