This charming three-act opera was a surprise in 1859 for those critics who thought Meyerbeer capable only of large-scale grand operas. In fact, it became one of his most popular and enduring works. The story of the hapless and demented young Dinorah roaming the hills with her goat, Bellah, was a favourite of the diva Adelina Patti. The Philharmonia Orchestra is conducted by James Judd.
