Madeleine Milhaud et al. in Covent Garden - early October, 1969

from The Later Diaries of Ned Rorem 1961-1972, pages 282-283:

Last night in London they sat through Colin Davis' uncut version of Les Troyens, found it sublime. Such an admission seems more foreign to me that the Milhauds themselves seemed twenty years ago.
