Pepusch's ballad opera Polly, composed in 1729 to John Gay's libretto as a sequel to their highly successful The Beggar's Opera (1728), never reached the stage owing to government censorship. In 1777, Samuel Arnold completely renovated the score, which established his reputation as London's preeminent theatre composer. With its melodramatic tale reuniting Polly Peachum and Macheath in the West Indies and ending in Polly's marriage to the 'Indian prince' Cawwawkee, this 'island paradise' opera was a huge hit and remains enormously entertaining today.


FonoForum 08 / 10: "Die Songs sind zwar ein bisschen kurzatmig, aber nicht ohne Charme und Schmiss. Das Aradia-Ensemble aus Toronto unter Kevin Mallon und eine Riege junger kanadischer Sänger bringen diese "Ballad opera", ein typisches Beispiel für musikalisches Unterhaltungstheater im London des 18. Jahrhunderts und durchaus ein Vorläufer der heutigen Musicals, mit sympathischem Einsatz unter die Leute."
