These performances mark the New York premiere of the English-language transalation by Mark Herman and Ronnie Apter. Herman & Apter’s translations of operas, operettas, and choral works have been performed in the United States, Canada, England, and Scotland. Their work has been called "highly sing-able" in The New York Times, "lively" in The London Times, and "remarkably deft" in The Village Voice. Many of their poetry translations have appeared in literary magazines. They are currently writing a book on Translating for Singing to be published in England in 2015.
