Bittersweet, Noel Coward's famous operetta which features some of his greatest songs, ("I'll See You Again", "If Love Were All" and "Zigeuner" amongst others) is now released on JAY Records to celebrate Noel Coward's centenary year. This recording, unlike previous recordings, places the songs and music in their dramatic context, based on a production by the New Sadler's Wells Opera.
