Ned Rorem in Alice Tully Hall - 8 December, 1985

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 606:

Marvelously rehearsed and produced revival of the pruned Lord Byron in its semi-staged production at Tully Hall (if that stage can look so elegant for Virgil on Saturday, why not for Sharon on Wednesday?), and both he music and Jack Larson's libretto seemed paradoxically less dated than at the world premiere in 1972. Everyone there, everyone content; the show lasted just long enough.
