Marmaduke E Browne Suggest updates

Rev Marmaduke E Browne.

English translator.

Browne's stylishly witty translation of Cosi fan tutte first appeared in a production by students of the Royal College of Music at the Savoy Theatre, London on 16 July 1890, conducted by Stanford. It was revised by Edward J Dent in 1926, and used in a new Sadler's Wells staging by Glen Byam Shaw in 1964. When John Cox directed the next production for English National Opera in 1980 he made some adjustments to bring the sense closer to da Ponte's original. Sir Charles Mackerras, conductor of that production, used this version for his English language recording made in 2007.
