Opera collaborations with Francis Money-Coutts

While living in London Albéniz met the solicitor, poet and aspiring librettist Francis Money-Coutts with whom he signed an exclusive contract for ten years. Coutts provided Albéniz with a secure income and collaborated with him on three operas with varying degrees of success. Donald Macleod introduces extracts from two of those joint ventures, one based on a popular novel by a contemporary Spanish writer, and the other, a very English opera set in the time of the Wars of the Roses.
