Lontano perform Ethel Smyth’s The Boatswain’s Mate

Lontano, conducted by Odaline de la Martinez, will record Ethel Smyth’s seminal opera The Boatswain’s Mate for Retrospect Opera in September 2015.

Martinez is a known champion of Smyth’s work, having previously conducted a highly acclaimed recording of her opera The Wreckers, the only of Smyth’s operas to be recorded in its entirety.

This new recording will provide an opportunity to bring Smyth’s work to a wider audience and allow her work to receive the recognition it deserves.
