Listeners will begin to smile at the first sound of Walter Covell's delicious English accent. "The Canterville Ghost" is perhaps Oscar Wilde's most famous story, employing his knife-sharp wit, his keen observations, and his cunning commentary on society. Covell's performance holds its own with the best renditions of this story, including operas, plays, and films. His timing is perfect, and his portrayal of character is dynamic and reflective of the stories' imperious humor.
Over the years, there have been many adaptations of this story for movies, TV and even for the Opera.
