This production moves with the grace of a minuet, guided through its abridgment by elegant music. Stevenson's dulcet voice perfectly suits the drawing-room atmosphere; her almost languid tones seem to personify the indolent artifices of the era. The character of Fanny, so meekly accepting of abuse in her adopted home, is clearly delineated and if she appears a bit flat in personality, it must be ascribed to her role of setting off the selfishness of those around her. Even the packaging is neat, containing a nice précis of the plot contained on each cassette and other pertinent information. S.B.S. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 96]
